Thank you for participating in the 2019 Global Energy Conference!
The Global Energy Conference (GEC) offered an outstanding environment to connect with industry colleagues and draw inspiration from exceptional speakers and panelists. We learned about how to thrive in what has become a volatile, unpredictable energy environment. But even more, we heard a multitude of ideas that will not only help our organizations stay current but get ahead of the curve.
In case you missed our live broadcast of the General Session: Future trends in geopolitics and the economy and the Fireside Chat with The Honorable Rex W. Tillerson, the webcast replays are now available.
Are you thriving or surviving?
It’s no revelation to say energy is evolving on virtually every level: generation, distribution, price, storage, technology, regulation. Today, as an industry, we must recognize the inevitable changes and respond progressively and productively.
This year’s Global Energy Conference (GEC), brought to you by KPMG’s Global Energy Institute (GEI), is all about moving away from a reactive focus on relevance and merely surviving toward a proactive effort to increase value and spur growth. It’s about thriving in what has become a volatile, unpredictable energy environment. From innovation and cyber security to e-mobility and digitalization, this year’s presenters will not only help you stay current, but get ahead of the curve.
The agenda will include perspectives from our keynote speakers, who are uniquely positioned to discuss today’s environment. The Honorable Rex W. Tillerson, 69th U.S. Secretary of State; Former Chief Executive Officer, Exxon Mobil Corporation, has keen observations and insights to share from his experience of leading one of the world’s largest companies and representing the United States on the international stage. Leonard Brody, two Time Emmy Nominee, President of the Clarity Digital Group & Best-Selling Author of Innovation Nation will explore the questions the future holds, and how energy organizations can harness uncertainty and turn it into excitement, innovation, and success.
Learn how you can thrive in an unpredictable world at this year’s GEC!

KPMG hosted the Global Energy Conference, on June 6-7, 2018 in Houston, TX. The conference brought together senior energy executives and thought leaders from the oil, gas, power, and utility industries to discuss and debate the biggest trends and challenges facing the global energy sector. The agenda included perspectives from our keynote speakers who were uniquely positioned to discuss today’s environment.
Soledad O’Brien, award-winning journalist, documentarian, news anchor, and producer, lead us in thinking about the role of the media in today’s heavily polarized discussions, allegations of external manipulation, and whether the notion of “fake news” has truly affected the global public. The Honorable George J. Mitchell, former U.S. Senate majority leader (1989–1995), who received an honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II for negotiating the Good Friday Peace Agreement between Northern Ireland and Ireland after three decades of conflict, shared his views on how we move forward in a unilateral, G-Zero world, a scenario in which there is no one country that can drive a truly global agenda.
This 1-day conference, through a combination of general and concurrent sessions, provides participants with insight and updates into timely and relevant energy issues.
This program is worth approximately 10.5 CPE credits.
There are no prerequisite or advanced preparation requirements for this course.
