BG Group's Walter Simpson to be 2009 Drilling Conference chairman
As one of three panelist speakers during Thursday’s plenary session, Mr Simpson spoke to the industry’s personnel challenges and encouraged companies to invest more in employee development. He also said that the conference’s Program Committee is already discussing ways to promote diversity at next year’s event – both in terms of wider geographical representation and in getting the industry’s 30-and-younger workers to participate in the conference.
“We’ve had some fantastic sessions in the last couple of days, and I hope we will do as good a job next year in Amsterdam,” he said. “I look forward to seeing you next year.”
