Fireside Chat | Kamingespräch: Music & Management

Analogies of Leadership & Teams in Music & Management

Dr. Stephanie Oestreich, a biotech executive and a semi-professional violinist who also performs with the Boston Philarmonic Orchestra, together with three classical musicians will demonstrate analogies between superior musical performances and successes in business. What has conducting in common with leadership of teams? Numerous practical examples have shown that important lessons about teams and leadership can be gained from conductors in orchestras, since these lessons can be made directly audible by demonstrating them with musicians.

Join us for this very special evening of (beautiful) music and (hands-on) management tips.

As always, this Fireside Chat is taking place in the warmth and intimacy of a private residence — one of our gracious members who opens their house to host. This time, we are invited into the home of a Newton resident.
