Event #2 Description/Presentation Abstract: Entrepreneurship and Innovation


Over the past four decades my personal business philosophy was forged by competing against the best of the best in the investment community.  With your permission I would love to share with you a few of the lessons learned.  Let’s get started.


 Focus on achieving your daily activity and production goals. 



  • Monitor and track your results and adjust in real time.

  • Every business is looking for something. Help the market place clarify what they want. Then help them get it.  This is how you build value.

  • To become more profitable, reduce expenses, grow revenue, add new customers and become more efficient in all areas of your business.

Event #3 Description/Presentation Abstract: SPE Professionals Exemplify Integrity and Ethics


An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility is paramount to every SPE member working in the petroleum industry. However, the ethical dilemmas they experience while progressing through their career stages can vary in nature and complexity, spanning a broad spectrum from student issues to those encountered at an executive level position. Common ethical issues include confidentiality, conflict of interest, copyrights, intellectual property, data fabrication, misrepresentation of safety, compliance with regulations, reserves overbooking, corruption, plagiarism, cheating, and incomplete citations of others’ work. Ethical behavior is required to manage relationships with contractors, vendors, partners, land owners, competitors, governments, regulatory agencies, employees, management and coworkers.   This workshop is designed to raise ethical awareness and to facilitate SPE members in understanding and following the twelve canons in SPE’s Code of Professional Conduct.  The goals of the workshop will be achieved by engaging the workshop participants in discussing well known case studies from the oil and gas industry, as well as from other industries.  Understanding integrity and ethical behavior supports development of the soft skills of leadership and diversity.  This talk is designed to meet ethics requirement for continuing education for licensure.
