Whether it’s improving the old or blazing new paths, companies and leaders are hearing the call for innovation and accepting the challenge to be more safe, efficient, effective and accountable.

The rigid falter and the resilient that survive.  The last few years in the global energy value chain has highlighted this point to perfection.  As prices plummeted, weak companies were exposed, and companies that were built on a solid foundation were able to step to the forefront and turn crisis into opportunity.  Is your company resilient?  What does it take to build a resilient healthy workforce and culture?  Are you trying new things and exploring new ways?  Are you able to quickly reinvent what you’re doing as the markets change?

3:15 - 4:00 PM               Growth: New Opportunities of Expansion in Energy

As we look to the future, it’s not necessarily the ability to scale your business as much as it is knowing “where” and “when” to scale your business and how to manage risk.  Times are changing, and while there is growth in oil and gas and renewables, technology and innovation are opening doors for growth in new areas that were never affordable and available until now. Additionally, cybersecurity and geopolitics become new challenges as growth emerges.  Where are the growth opportunities and risks in your organization and career?  What new mindsets are needed to drive the industry through this new growth?

4:00 – 4:45 PM               Communication in the Digital Age of Transparency

We live in a world where a single tweet, video or social media post can reach millions of people in seconds and holds with it the power to elevate a brand to stardom or doom it to extinction.  In this #MeToo and #TimesUp world, the social age is unravelling truths and fake news that is changing how we engage and more importantly, share and use our voices.  This panel will include external media, industry and other experts to talk about how communication and information is changing how companies do business, manage employees and drive advocacy.
