Event #1 Description/Presentation Abstract: Sixteen Personality Factors (16pf®): An Empirical Approach to Navigating Work-Life Decisions
Over 70 years of factor analytic research have identified 16 stable, fundamental building blocks of personality. The 16 Personality Factors (16pf®) provide insight into individual patterns such as relating to others, influencing, decision making, self-control, and management of pressure. Empirically developed, the 16pf® assessment has proven reliable and predictive of individual life-work outcomes. It provides an objective measure of many soft-skill competencies. During work-life decisions or trade-offs, the sixteen factors help identify directions most likely to lead to success given your individual strengths, watch-points, and preferences.

Event #2 Description/Presentation Abstract: The Evolution of the American Shale Plays: Where We Are and How We Got There
The exploration, appraisal and development of shale reservoirs in America over the past decade has been one of the most extraordinary periods in the history of America’s oil and gas industry. The advent of isolated multi-stage hydraulic fracturing in 2006, in conjunction with technical advances in horizontal drilling, resulted in over a dozen shale reservoirs that were proven to be capable of producing commercial volumes of oil and natural gas.
During the decade, these shale plays displayed different levels of evolution based on the level of activity and the knowledge gained in the five key disciplines that contribute to successful oil and gas operations: geology, land, drilling, completion and production. Each of these disciplines required increasing levels of knowledge and optimization as the plays progressed along the maturity scale. It is also possible to rank the plays within the referenced maturity scale and this presentation will attempt to do that as well as offer unique anecdotal commentary on each play.
