Join us for an interactive event with artists and scientists as they explore the parallels between their creative work, collaboration, leadership, and the demands of the modern business environment.
Stephanie Oestreich is both an Executive Vice President at Evotec and an accomplished violinist. She will demonstrate essential leadership skills through a musical performance. A symphony orchestra is a real-world example of teamwork, collaboration, discipline, learning, role clarity, execution, and true leadership in action between the conductor (leader) and musicians (team). This program will use exercises that facilitate a discussion between participants, conductor, and musicians about how playing in an orchestra mirrors a business environment.
To enhance the artistic environment, scientific illustration will be presented by Andrea Repetto and Abigail Wall, graduates of the University of Washington’s Natural Science Illustration program. This program combines the beauty of nature with the precision of scientific observation. The discipline and creativity needed to create great art translate directly into skills needed for great management. The results of these skills will be on display and the artists available for discussion.
