Event Description/Presentation Abstract:  Investment Banking vs. Consulting vs. Working in Industry vs. Starting a Company: Perspectives from Someone Who’s Done It All


This presentation will delve into the pros and cons of several very different careers: working for an energy bank, being an independent consultant, working for an oil and gas company, or starting your own company. The presenter has started “at least five” different companies over the years, worked for three different banks between the 80’s and now, worked out of his bedroom and from landmark downtown skyscrapers, has been broke several times and rich at least once. He can debate industry vs. banking vs. self-employment vs. entrepreneurship from any side. Information will be provided on how to get started in each field, and you will learn some hard lessons that will hopefully save you at least as much time, money, sweat, or tears.
