Agenda coming soon
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.
In this “state of the union” session, KPMG Chief Economist, Constance Hunter, and KPMG head of Federal Tax Legislative and Regulatory Services, John Gimigliano, will provide an economic outlook, views on the global economy and demand, and an practical discussion on the monumental legislative changes to U.S. tax laws and implications for the energy industry.
