November 2018 Newsletter

2018 is flying by so quickly!

We want to see you all there!

LEAN IN CIRCLE LUNCH:  November Topic – Keynote Speaker Dena Lund

Dena Lund, Executive Vice President of Operations and Engineering for Sterling Energy, will be presenting on Strategic Thinking for November’s Lean In Circle Lunch.  Those of you that have met Dena or heard her speak know that she offers powerful personal experience and thoughtful insights into being a women in the energy industry!  Dena is also very active in our local energy industry associations and a great supporter of WOGA.  We’ll see you there!

On Strategic Thinking:   In its simplest form, strategic thinking is an ability to plan for the future. It’s the capacity to prepare strategies and conjure ideas that will both cope with changing environments and consider the various challenges that lie ahead. Candidates that possess strategic thinking skills will be seen as top talent, and it’s a quality that makes many managers, directors and executives the successful leaders they are.   

Lunch is generously provided by Sterling Energy.  Sign up today!
