Energy is Transitioning. Build the Future. Be the Hero.
November 24 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
“Energy is Transitioning. Build the Future. Be the Hero”.
The oil and gas industry faces extraordinary headwinds from environmental activism, talent flight, and capital abandonment. The narrative about the industry has flipped from being an essential social product to an industrial dead end.
Nothing could be further from the truth. There are still 1.2 billion cars on the road, 300 million heavy trucks and thousands of planes. These vehicles desperately want to move. But change we must to halt climate impacts.
There is only one tool in the kit bag that can simultaneously cut costs, boost productivity, and put the climate back on track while we shift to new energies, and that’s digital innovation. It’s the incumbents who are best positioned to define, create, and own the future world of energy.
This engaging and inspiring talk lifts the oil and gas industry up from its doldrums, and presents the future as a place of hope. To be the hero of the energy transition, oil and gas must swiftly embrace digital innovations to transform the sector. Think like a digital innovator, exploit the three laws of digital, and break free from the challenges of change.
