Barbie Brewer

Human Resources Leader and former VP of Talent, Netflix

Barbie Brewer began her career in Silicon Valley during the dot.com boom of the ’90s and is now an industry-leading expert in developing critical areas of modern business performance and culture, including remote and hybrid workforces. As Chief Culture Officer at GitLab Inc., Brewer has contributed to the all-remote SAS company’s growth from 150 employees to over 1,000 in more than 60 countries. She was Vice President of Talent for Netflix when the streaming service expanded from 20 million subscribers to over 150 million. As an advisory/ interim HR leader, Brewer has worked with hypergrowth companies in Silicon Valley and New York to build out and coach the C-Suite. While at Cisco, she lived and worked in Europe for three years. Brewer holds a master’s in human resource management and a bachelor’s in communication and business from Santa Clara University.

Love of family and recognition of the need for impactful leadership inspired her to write this book.


Lead and Let Live

Leadership Lessons for the Future of Work

A scary medical diagnosis spurred human resources executive Barbie Brewer to consider what she wanted her children to know about life and her when she’s gone. Lead and Let Live applies Brewer’s empathy, her significant experience with influential companies such as GitLab and Netflix, and her ability to collaborate and focus on purpose for her colleagues and other people she interacts with. This book is optimistic and real—a must for leaders of business and leaders of self. This is an opportunity for anyone in the new workplace to confront the challenges with confidence. Brewer shares life lessons you can put to use daily at work and home. She shows through examples such as hybrid work, which she championed even before COVID-19 hit, that the values she holds dear can lead to a more meaningful life. With Brewer’s guidance, you’ll find resilience and courage you never knew before . . . when you lead and let live.
