YPP USA Symposium and Conference Houston

Keynote presentation by Alan Armstrong, President and CEO of Williams, and Tisha Schuller, Founder and CEO of Adamantine Energy

The Energy Future Requires You

As CEO Alan Armstrong positions Williams Companies for the next 100 years, he must envision what the low-cost, low-carbon energy company of the future requires. One thing is certain, it will require the best and brightest, ready to operationalize the evolution of energy. Tisha Schuller, CEO of Adamantine Energy and author of the The Gamechanger’s Playbook: How Oil and Gas Companies Thrive in an Era of Continuous Disruption, will interview Alan to explore the opportunities that are abound for the pipeline industry’s emerging leaders. What do you have to look forward to? What skills and characteristics must you develop now? What do we know about the landmines and disruptions ahead? This conversation is a must-attend for anyone ready to embrace the pipeline industry’s leadership responsibilities to capitalize on the myriad professional opportunities ahead.

As part of our mission to educate and train young professionals, we engage with our members through monthly webinars, quarterly in-person/virtual workshops, engagement at conferences, and networking events. In addition to these opportunities, YPP USA hosts a bi-annual symposium. The YPP USA symposium is our flagship event that brings together industry experts and young professionals to discuss opportunities in the pipeline industry. Our last two symposiums had over 100+ attendees and received very positive feedback.

Our next symposium will be hosted on April 7th, 2022 with the theme “Our Energy Future”. At this event, we will bring together industry experts to discuss the future of the pipeline industry and the opportunities it presents as we transition to a carbon-neutral industry. Key topics will include the introduction of hydrogen in pipelines, the future of pipeline integrity, pipeline asset security, and the latest technologies being implemented in pipeline design. In addition, this event will host two-panel sessions including senior executives from operators and service providers to discuss the energy composition of the future and managing future workforce talent in the pipeline industry.
