Join us for an informal session with our chapter’s own Joe Williams, where he will share what he has found to be true in his 40-plus year career.
Joe will share snippets, stories and truisms from his varied career and life experiences in a sit-down, intimate and up-close setting with chapter members and guests. Over a cup of coffee.
This isn’t a boring, historical recount of events in his life, but rather sage advice and thoughtful perspectives for anyone seeking greater clarity and application to their own professional and personal growth.
RSVP now to fill your cup on Jan. 25.
- When: Wednesday, Jan. 25 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
- Where: Foolish Things, 1001 S. Main St., Tulsa, OK 74119
- Fee: Free to attend
