Young Professionals Workshop

Pathways with Petroleum

Sunday, 8 November, 1300-1700

Meeting Room M1

As many Young Professionals are being placed with a higher level of responsibility in the industry, greater emphasis is being put on young employees to step into challenging technical and managerial roles. Equally important, Young Professionals have the responsibility to be proactively involved with the leadership development process as well as being creative and innovative in order to meet the challenges. To help address these issues, the Young Professionals Workshop is designed for graduates and young professionals in the oil and gas industry under the age of 35 with less than 10 years industry experience in any technical discipline. Industry executives, young professionals, and university students will have the opportunity to engage in discussions about the future directions for young professionals in the oil and gas industry.
