Energy underpins everything we do but the landscape and skillsets required are forever changing and we need to evolve to stay ahead. The HERWorld Energy Forum on 8 March 2019 brings together fantastic speakers and topics internal and external to the energy sector to help our commitment, capability and confidence to manage this change.
We’re proud to have Google as a presenting sponsor and to have Darryl Willis, VP with Google Cloud as a keynote speaker on March 7.
Darryl Willis’ mission is for everyone to have access to affordable heat, light, and mobility. A former BP executive turned Silicon Valley transformer, Darryl is a catalyst for change seeking new ways, ideas, and providing new technology to create the future for energy. Over his 25-year career in oil and gas, Willis has gained technical and global management expertise in subsurface, drilling, operations, technology, and strategy. At Google Cloud, Willis is helping to bridge Silicon Valley and the Oil, Gas and Energy industry, enabling energy companies to process data and gain insights and unlock value. With over two decades of experience in Data Analytics, AI/ML, Security, Infrastructure, Google Cloud is applying this knowledge to Oil, Gas & Energy with the goal of helping the industry become as safe, efficient, and clean as possible.
During this experience, which is taking place on International Women’s Day, we will:
Get our shift together, collectively and seek new perspectives on the energy transition, technology, policy and workforce.
Learn ways to overcome deliberate and unconscious bias in the workplace with Lean In Energy, the industry’s first global mentoring initiative aimed at giving access and leveling the playing field for women.

Understand the fallacy of the ‘well-balanced’ life from world-renounced and New York Times best-selling author, Randi Zuckerberg.
Shake up the C-suite and talk with entrepreneurs to seek their insights on how they see shifts happening in our industry.
