A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending and facilitating a panel at the annual HMG CIO Summit conference in Denver, along with hundreds of other practitioners and technology leading sponsors. If you are a CIO, these events are a must attend! It not only allows you to hear leadership strategies from top global CIOs, but also allows you to get unfiltered opinions and hear unbiased research about the latest technologies. The theme this year was The CIO as CEO of Technology: The Courage to Lead in the Future Enterprise. I have participated in these events for years here and in other major cities. I was reminded of the amazing buzz you have when that many leaders and innovators are together in one place talking about what is needed to transform our global economy through technology. I happen to be an early adopter, and it was clear from the start that we all have an incredible passion for technology.
We are just a few days away! Clare Martin, Vice President of Programs for Surrey Satellite Technology US is our Keynote speaker for the event and is up on the WIL panelist blog series. Read Clare's interview questions below!
I attended the Rocky Mountain Energy Summit last week here in Denver and had a few observations.
Many industry people that I know and met at the show are increasing optimistic about the state of the Oil and Gas industry. I asked everyone that I spoke with how they felt about the industry and what they felt the near term looked like. Contrary to the last two years, attendees were much more optimistic and looking forward to a more predictable pricing environment and an increase in spending and exploration budgets. It definitely felt like a significant change to me.
