Oil & Gas Leadership and Success Virtual Summit Addresses Current Industry Crisis & Impact of COVID-19

Providing Leadership and Succeeding in a Time of Crisis

In March this year, when the world was beginning to feel the full impact of COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing became the new normal, the Oil & Gas Leadership and Success Virtual Summit was realised so that the industry could remain connected and engaged to be able to address the challenges but also network ideas and solutions.

With the aim of bringing together top Oil and Gas Business Experts, Industry Thought Leaders, Independents, Government, Key Stakeholders, Strategic Thinkers and Operational Leaders; the Oil & Gas Leadership and Success Virtual Summit is designed to take you on a step-by-step journey throughout the Oil and Gas Value Chain on how to deal with the current crisis, adapting to a new world order and how to succeed going forward.

Organisers Joe Watson Gakuo and Jodee Lourensz look forward to launching this unique initiative that gives you the option to watch live or on-demand; presentations, interviews and panel discussions. The Summit is online-only, so no travel, no approval forms to complete, and no re-scheduling of meetings so that if you attend, you will have a week of work to catch up on.

Five days' worth of content with C-Suite and Senior Executive leaders covering a broad range of topics with the objective to help you navigate the current problems being faced within the industry and gain a better understanding of how to move forward strategically. Joe Watson Gakuo, co-organiser and host of the event said “We are excited to host this event and provide a platform to discuss the problems and solutions needed. We are passionate about the industry, and the success of everyone in the value chain". 

Join the meeting LIVE on Zoom at the end of the week for the opportunity to network during the Bubbles and Business Virtual Networking Cocktail including LIVE Interactive Entertainment.

Get in touch for more information on how you can promote your company, brand, service or product, via this virtual platform to gain targeted exposure to the Oil & Gas Industry Leaders, Influencers and Potential Clients, with our Sponsor & Exhibition Packages designed for your budget.
