When: Tuesday, May 21st

Time: 5:30PM – 7:30PM

Where: Elgin Park | 325 East Mathew B. Brady St. | Tulsa, OK 74120

 

Common measures of success in business focus on “Left-Brained” traits: facts, order, analysis. Increasingly, creativity, or “Right-Brained” traits, are being highlighted as an important component of success. How do we bring balance between these two dominant ways of thinking? How do we adapt to what our environment expects? Join us as Gena Nelson, Chief Data Strategist at dataStrat and Enterprise Data Architect for ONE Gas, shares her journey as a “Right-Brained” person living and working in a “Left-Brained” world.
