Welcome to the Energy Practice’s 2012 Director / Managing Director Meeting. The purpose of the Director / Managing Director Conference is to provide each of you with a broad practice perspective as well as the more focused strategy and vision for global expansion. The teamwork and networking that this meeting is designed to foster will enable all of us to better leverage our internal opportunities and relationships as we implement and execute our strategy. We have brought together a remarkable group of professionals to help guide you and inspire you. As the leaders of this practice, we hope you will take advantage of what you learn over the next two days, and share your insights with your team. The sessions provided are designed to invoke better communication and stronger relationships that will ultimately allow us to better serve our clients and enhance the outcomes of our sales processes. Over the next two days, we expect you will connect – or reconnect – with your colleagues and forge new and stronger business relationships. Please take advantage of the collective knowledge and experience that the facilitators bring to this forum, and know that the best way to achieve your goals is to share ideas and insight, and to help each other to succeed.
