Why Attend?

For many E&P professionals, developing the expertise to successfully move into and perform in a leadership role is difficult. The technical skills that got you the job aren’t the same skills you need to move up.

  • Sharpen your communication skills and learn how to adapt your approach when needed
  • Develop the proficiency required to act as a leader in a multi-disciplinary environment and influence others when you don’t have formal authority
  • Learn how to present your ideas most effectively to key stakeholders
  • Understand how successful people develop themselves and leverage networks
  • Prepare yourself for the challenges you face in developing your career

Who Should Attend
