When we meet

OKWIT meets the last Thursday in Tulsa and last Wednesday in OKC of every month for either lunch, happy hour or coffee.

OKWIT OKC July Event

WHEN: WEDNESDAY, July 26, 2017 
TIME: 5:30 – 7:30PM
WHERE: Innovation Station — Rose State Downtown OKC  | 133 West Main Street, Suite #102, Downtown Oklahoma City (next to Sweets & Eats Cafe), OKC, OK 73102 — Parking after 5pm is free in the Sante Fe Parking Lot.

 

Join our “LEGO SERIOUS PLAY” workshop this month where we will utilize a process designed to enhance innovation and business performance. Based on research which shows that this kind of hands-on, minds-on learning produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities, the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY methodology deepens the reflection process and supports an effective dialogue –for everyone. You’ll be amazed what you learn about yourself and others through this experience. You’ll not only be more self-aware, but you’ll better understand the importance of effective communication with others as well.

Hosted at the downtown Rose State Innovation Station including food & a cash bar provided by our sponsors Devon Energy, Cox Communications and SecureWorks.

This month we are excited to have our OKWIT Co-Founder & President in T-Town as our speaker, where she’ll not only share the story of OKWIT and the vision for where we’re headed, but also her personal background and what drives her to support and advocate for women in tech. Her story is compelling, inspirational and motivating all at once. But what you’ll be amazed by, is how much of yourself you will see in her. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear our story from the original storyteller.

In addition, she also holds a MBA from Oklahoma City University and is PMP certified with the Project Management Institute.

Brandy is dedicated to coaching others in managing successful projects, regardless of one’s background or training, as seen from her blog articles Project Success: Six Factors.
