I was recently reading an article on the respected US women’s soccer program and the coach of their first world title in 1991, Anson Dorrance. He is quoted as making an observation about what makes their program different which struck a chord with me – “…talent is common; what you invest to develop that talent is the critical final measure of greatness”.
I know that time and budgets are limited – but are we as an industry making the commitments required to develop our talented teams and staff? We at Petrosys have successfully developed and delivered virtual training courses providing a comprehensive trainer led environment suited to the world we live in today.
As a happy client recently commented, ‘Thank you Ebelio and rest of technology team for well-organized smooth delivery of Petrosys course. It was the first virtual delivery and proved to be excellent.’
I encourage you to browse through the varied options and services we have available.
We are continuing to invest in a mix of in-person and virtual sessions to share our insights, learn from our peers and connect with our valued user community and it is with pleasure that I invite you to join us at some upcoming events.
Paul Gibb, Petrosys and Jonathan Smith, Interica will be attending the upcoming PPDM Associate’s Europe Virtual Data Byte to present, ‘Linking structured data to unstructured data: An E&P industry collaboration to improve future decisions’. Registration is open and free to attend.
While the Petrosys team in Australia are hoping to catch up with many colleagues, customers, and partners at our first live in person event for over a year at the APPEA Conference & Exhibition from 14-17 June in Perth. We are very much looking forward to seeing you there.
