Upcoming speech in Aberdeen

speThe folks with the London and Aberdeen sections of the Society of Petroleum Engineers sent me a copy of the latest issue of the SPE Review, which mentions my upcoming speech in Aberdeen on March 5. I’ll be talking about corrosive corporate cultures to about 400 attendees at a conference entitled “Another Perspective on Risk — The Next Tipping Point.”

Having former BP chief executive John Browne featured on the cover is a nice touch of irony, because BP’s culture, which Browne largely created, and how it contributed to accidents such as the Deepwater Horizon disaster will be a focus of my talk.

I’ll also be signing copies of Drowning in Oil at the event. For more information on the conference, click here.
