Luncheon Keynote: KPMG Chief Economist Diane Swonk

Diane’s knowledge of economics is particularly broad with respect to the Federal Reserve and monetary policy as well as the labor markets.

She started her career with money-center bank First Chicago and has won many awards in her career for her excellence in her profession and leadership in the broader business community. She climbed from entry-level to Director of Research and Chief Economist at Bank One, the merged bank. Before joining KPMG, Diane had her own economic consulting firm and worked at Grant Thornton. She spent the prior 10+ years as Senior Managing Director and Chief Economist at the financial services firm, Mesirow Financial.

She served as an advisor to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the National Economic Council (NEC) on a nonpartisan basis. She regularly briefs the regional Federal Reserve banks and the Board of Governors in Washington, DC. She has provided Congressional testimony on income inequality and how to preserve and bolster the quality of government statistics on the economy.

She was honored by her peers as Fellow of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE) for her outstanding contributions to the field. She serves on the NABE statistics committee to advocate for better information on the economy. Diane serves on the board of the Posse Foundation in Chicago, an organization dedicated to increasing access to higher education. She is active in supporting scholarships and programs to diversity the ranks of economists with more women and underrepresented minorities with her alumni groups and work on the NABE Foundation. She is a member of many business groups, including the Economic Advisory Board of the US Chamber of Commerce, and the Council on Foreign Relations.

Diane recently took over the growing economics team at KPMG to serve partners and clients, and to engage with the media to help showcase the firm’s many achievements. Diane was named one of the top 50 most influential economists during the pandemic. She has won numerous awards through the financial press and been recognized for her excellence in forecast by the regional Federal Reserve banks.

Closing Keynote: Futurist Brian David Johnson

The future is Brian David Johnson's business. From 2009 to 2016, Johnson was Intel Corporation's first-ever futurist.  As a futurist he works with organizations to develop an actionable 10 to 15-year vision and what it will feel like to live in the future. His work is called futurecasting, using ethnographic field studies, technology research, cultural history, trend data, global interviews and even science fiction to provide a pragmatic road map of the future. As an applied futurist Johnson has worked with governments, trade organizations, start-ups, and multinational corporations to not only help envision their future but specify the steps needed to get there.  Johnson is currently the futurist in residence at Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination, a professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and the Director of the ASU Threatcasting Lab.  He is also a Futurist and Fellow at Frost and Sullivan.

Johnson speaks and writes extensively in ongoing columns for IEEE Computer Magazine and Successful Farming where he is the "Farm Futurist”. He has contributed articles to publications like The Wall Street Journal, Slate, and Wired Magazine. Johnson holds over 40 patents and is the best-selling author of both science fiction and fact books (A Threatcasting Textbook [Morgan and Claypool], The Future You [Harper], WaR: Wizards and Robots [Penguin], and 21st Century Robot [Make]). He was appointed first futurist ever at the Intel Corporation in 2009 where he worked for over a decade helping to design over 2 billion microprocessors. Johnson appears regularly on the BBC, Bloomberg TV, PBS, FOX News, and the Discovery Channel and has been featured in Scientific American, The Technology Review, Forbes, INC, and Popular Science. He has directed two feature films and is an illustrator and commissioned painter. In 2016 Samuel Goldwyn released "Vintage Tomorrows” a documentary based upon Johnson's book of the same name.

The KPMG Global Energy Transformation Conference (GETC), now in its 19th year, attracts hundreds of professionals each year and brings together energy executives and luminaries to share ideas and gain insights on the current issues and emerging challenges that will impact the energy industry in the coming year. The conference offers a rich, candid exchange of views among industry leaders.

This intensive one-day program consists of general sessions, breakout discussions, invitation-only strategic roundtable discussions, and keynote presentations by distinguished leaders.

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent opportunity to attend the 2019 Global Energy Conference. What a wonderful event, it was professional, thought provoking, inspiring and such a good image of the Energy Business.

Why you should attend

Conference highlights

The goal of the GETC is to provide participants with new insights, tools, and strategies to help them manage industry-related issues and challenges. Attendees have the opportunity to learn from leading energy companies, network and share effective practices.

Tailored conference experience

In addition to our notable speakers, an impressive lineup of industry professionals will offer new insights and strategies on hot topics during our concurrent panel sessions. Attendees can choose from a host of breakout discussions on the issues that are most relevant to their businesses, including discussion on tax, accounting, talent, renewables, investing, and leadership.

I have never been to an industry event which was so well represented by females in my entire career. All the panels were balanced, diverse and demonstrated the female talent of our industry which is hardly ever on display.

Join us on November 2, 2022 at The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston, Texas, for a premier event for executives in the energy, automotive, financial services, banking, industrial manufacturing, telecomm, and technology industries.
