Event Details

EnergyDOT is a one-day annual conference for sharing the experiences of Oil & Gas, Energy, Finance and Technology professionals to help us expose the industry to innovation and leadership from these industries. It will inspire us to embrace current cultural and technical advancements from other industries and showcase how best we all can work together to build a solid foundation for a promising career in the energy sector. 

Due to the adaptation of technologies and the synergies between Silicon Valley, finance, academia, technology companies and the Oil & Gas Industry in Houston, the Society of Petroleum Engineers believes that it will be a great initiative to have top executives from these sectors share their expertise and inspire engineers to find a middle ground to work together to solve the world’s energy problems. This is the first of such initiative in the industry.

In-Person 

We will be holding this event in person at The Asia Society of Texas Center, 1370 Southmore Blvd. Houston, TX 77004.

Simon Dawson was born in 1981 in Leamington Spa, England. His family then moved to Michigan when he was 4 years old. He grew up in both the U.S. and U.K. as his father, Ian, was an influential figure in the global motorsports community. Simon developed a passion for a variety of sports as a youth and became particularly versed in the game of tennis.

He graduated from high school in Houston and ultimately attended the University of North Carolina Charlotte on a tennis scholarship, where he studied athletic training, strength, conditioning and sports psychology.
In 2000, Simon returned to England and became a tennis pro, obtaining a top-25 ranking in the country playing doubles with world top-five ranked player Rosco Tanner.



Simon soon became a full-time tennis and fitness instructor, and after a stint as a salesperson and marketing manager at England’s Next Generation club, joined his father in the world of motorsports. Simon trained drivers and contributed to the development of his father’s teams, working extensively with Lola, while also preparing a variety of well-known Formula 1 and IndyCar competitors for their grueling races.



Simon also spent several years as business manager for Ferrari race team Risi Competizione. Then in 2012, he became part of his father’s Project Libra Race program, helping develop the Radical Sportscar Ford EcoBoost race engine and the team’s first race car.

For six years, Simon and Ian enjoyed great success with Radical Texas in Houston selling track-day vehicles, while testing and developing new cars and technologies. Simon also serves as president of Dawson Racing.
In 2018, Simon created D3eSports, of which he is now CEO and president. Establishing an educational platform for kids to learn STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) through eSports and racing has been his focus, while developing corporate partnerships in the global business.
In 2021, the Dawson Racing team was competing in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) championship in the D3+Transformers LMP3 for a doubleheader at the historic Watkins Glen International circuit in New York to further align their real racing with the virtual.
The driving force behind Simon’s passion for motorsports is his family, which includes his son, Dylan, and the dream of making racing an obtainable pastime and sport for all families.
