The World of Tomorrow; Today-  Increasing Collaboration in Heavy Oil

November 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join us for our 2 part webinar series plus virtual workshop on collaboration

Looking to drive positive change at your company and in your working relationships? Collaboration isn’t about the “warm and fuzzies”. It delivers on accomplishing more, especially in times like these, where doing things the same way won’t cut it.

In our energy industry, we need to push to find further efficiencies, advances, and savings just to stay competitive.   Accomplishing this in isolation will be difficult.  Exploring new ideas and new ways of looking at old ideas with a more diverse group of people is needed.

What you will get out of participating in the Collaborative Contracting webinar series:

  • Learn what collaborative contracting can do for you vs. traditional methods
  • Hear how your peers in the energy industry have benefited from collaboration already
  • Get a map of how to explore collaboration in your working relationships (workshop session)
  • Connect with others in Heavy Oil with a shared interest in collaborating (workshop session)

Please join us in a two webinar session plus a third virtual workshop session presented by Richard Venerus, Venerus Advisory Partners
