From Paper to Digital: How Technology is Transforming Industry (panel)

The Situation – The energy industry is at a crossroads. On one hand, technology is at the forefront and it is pushing the capabilities and limits of what we can accomplish. However, with constrained capital, companies face the decision whether to be leaders or laggards in adopting these enhancements.

So What? As practitioners, it is imperative that we understand the value proposition of technologies such as smart contracts and how they are evolving the way we conduct business. Join PASC as we present a panel of professionals involved in the design and implementation of progressive innovations. Each panelist will discuss his/her passions and perspective on the impending digital transformation.

The Joint Venture Audit “Hit List” and how it impacts you (panel)

The Situation – The new competitive landscape places greater constraints on resources. In turn, there are higher expectations for Joint Venture audit recoveries given the time and effort spent. Subsequently, effective auditors are proficient at using their limited resources to quickly determine key areas of focus and hone in on specific issues to raise, and their findings can often expose deeper underlying issues!

What’s in it for me? Being proactive and pre-emptive is advantageous for professionals and is also beneficial for companies. With a greater understanding of what auditors tend to look out for, developing enhanced organizational processes and procedures becomes a natural side-effect. Join PASC as it presents an excited panel of veterans to discuss the “hit list” of joint venture audit issues from both the corporate and auditor perspectives.

Terry has been involved in the Automation, Process Control & Optimization industry for over 28 years and brings a wealth of experience on how technology is changing the energy space. His passion is generating sustainable business results for industrial customers through the innovative application of advanced technologies. Technology has advanced significantly over the years, however, the “magic” is bringing together the people and processes to make it all work. The management of change is still one of the biggest challenges, and I have learned that engaging people with the right training and work processes is critical to the long-term success of an automation project.
