Mensa members are a fine audience to consider the tectonic shifts occurring in the oil & gas industry - Jimmy Vallee, Energy Commentator and Giant Shifts Author
San Diego, California (PRWEB) June 27, 2016
Author Jimmy Vallee, a leading American energy M&A lawyer and commentator, is scheduled to address Mensa’s Annual Gathering 2016 in San Diego on July 1st, 2016.
Conference attendees, all fitting membership requirements of a top 2% IQ, will attend Vallee’s presentation Giant Shifts: Energy Trends Reshaping America’s Future based on his upcoming book of the same name wherein he looks at:
- A Silicon Valley inspired technological revolution transforming the U.S. oil and gas industry at a lightning pace;
- The redrawn global oil map destabilizing the supply and demand economics (and politics) that formerly propped up OPEC’s cartel;
- How smart venture money and oil majors are quietly making strategic energy investments; and
- How changing demographics will soon leave a disastrous gap in the oil and gas industry workforce absent quick action.
Jimmy Vallee takes on the role of energy futurist as he looks at history, data, and new trends to distill several possible energy driven futures; and suggests which will happen depending on policy decisions our leaders make today.
“Mensa members are a fine audience to consider the tectonic shifts occurring in the oil & gas industry,” said Jimmy Vallee. “By definition they’re high-potential people with the analytical skills to help us drive an informed national conversation on critical energy policies as well as consider energy’s new business landscape.”
The Mensa national conference marks the start of Vallee’s Giant Shifts lecture tour.
