Edmonton Branch Luncheon: Energy in a Changing World

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The APEGA Edmonton Branch is excited to welcome François Blouin, P.Eng., from ATCO to present on how the electricity sector stands to be significantly disrupted by a number of technologies.

Register by November 9, 2018

A disruptive technology is one that displaces an established technology and shakes up the industry or a ground-breaking product that creates a completely new industry. The electricity sector stands to be significantly disrupted by a number of technologies. This will both create opportunities and pose challenges. 

This discussion will focus on several key questions:

  • What are the technologies that may disrupt the electric utility industry?
  • How large will the disruption likely be? When will it occur?
  • What factors may alter the impact and timing?
  • What will be the best way to respond?

About the Presenter

François was Awarded “Prolific Inventor” for contributing to Nortel’s intellectual property with twenty combined patents and filings in the area of high performance networking, wireless technologies, real-time system design, quality of experience (QoE) & user-centered design methodologies.

François joined ATCO in April 2016 to lead the innovation practice in the Electricity Global business unit where his focus is on utility of the future business models, new disruptive products and services. Key priorities include electrification of transportation, net zero housing and communities, energy orchestration and data platforms.

Calgary Branch Luncheon: Refining Bitumen in Alberta - Redwater Refinery

11:15 am - 1:00 pm

The APEGA Calgary Branch is excited to welcome Brian Livingston from the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary to discuss refining bitumen in Alberta - The North West Redwater Sturgeon Refinery Case Study.

Register by November 18, 2018

A question is often asked, which we will address: why can't Alberta have more refineries?

Since 2006, the government of Alberta has tried to increase the volume of raw bitumen upgraded and refined in the province of Alberta. The stated objectives were to diversify the economy, enhance the value of Alberta's resources and create employment. Notwithstanding these laudable objectives, in the last 30 years only one refinery has been built in Alberta to refine bitumen – the North West Redwater Sturgeon Refinery located near Edmonton.

The short answer to this question is that the high capital cost of building any industrial facility in Alberta makes the economics of an Alberta bitumen refinery challenging. Currently, almost half of bitumen produced in Alberta is upgraded into synthetic crude oil for use as feedstock in conventional refineries in Edmonton, Vancouver, eastern Canada or the United States. The remaining raw bitumen is mostly exported to the United States with a small amount to Asia, where it is used as a feedstock for refineries that have invested in special equipment to refine bitumen into petroleum products. This investment in special equipment was an add-on to existing and much larger refineries (brownfield), as opposed a brand new refinery (greenfield). As a result, the capital cost for these brownfield investments were significantly lower, and therefore the economic were significantly better.

In order to deal with the poorer economics caused by higher capital costs, the Alberta government agreed to pay a tolling fee to the Sturgeon Refinery for a period of 30 years. The presentation will describe the economics of this arrangement.

Calgary Branch Luncheon: Prepare for a Future with Artificial Intelligence

11:15 am - 1:00 pm

The APEGA Calgary Branch is excited to welcome Robin Winsor, President and CEO of Cybera, to discuss preparing for a future with artificial intelligence.

Register by December 9, 2018

It is becoming difficult to keep up with the exciting and sometimes alarming technology news that emerges every day: from AI-generated video making it impossible to tell real from fake, to bots controlling conversations on social media. Somewhere... humans are trying to figure out what’s left for them to do.

When the atomic bomb was developed in World War II, political leaders were able to control who had access to the means and development of that new and powerful piece of technology. Today, government cannot control the proliferation of new tech. The pace of change is simply too fast for legislative, regulatory, and educational systems to keep up. If we cannot look to our political leaders to set the the codes of conduct for new technologies, then who will? In the next few decades, we will need to develop a new relationship between humans and machines.

This talk will discuss some of the ways we can benefit from those changes, the perils if we don’t adapt, and what all this will demand of us.

About the Presenter

Robin Winsor is a highly influential visionary and executive in the technology field, who is known for being both a playful and provocative agent of change. Over the course of his extraordinary career, Robin invented the world’s first direct digital x-ray imaging device, and has led a not-for-profit technology accelerator to become one of Canada’s most vocal champions for the digitally disadvantaged.

Robin joined Cybera, a not-for-profit operator of Alberta’s Research and Education Network, as President and CEO in 2010. Under his leadership, the company’s mandate has expanded to provide digital services to Alberta’s K-12, First Nations, and public sectors. Cybera is now widely credited for overseeing the continuous development of Alberta’s cyber-infrastructure, while advocating on a national and international stage for improvements to the availability and accessibility of technology for all Canadians.

Robin is widely sought after as a speaker on the future of technology. He is a past recipient of a Manning Innovation Award, the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for outstanding service to Canada.

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind's greatest feats of human endurance. The two-month expedition to the top of the world's highest peak is a project filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges through some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his immediate family, reached the summit of Everest.

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind's greatest feats of human endurance. The two-month expedition to the top of the world's highest peak is a project filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges through some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his immediate family, reached the summit of Everest.  From teetering across ladders spanning seemingly bottomless crevasses and fighting the many altitude-related sicknesses to climbing through a blizzard in the dead of night, every segment of the climb was filled with intense, extraordinary challenges.

Alan's dynamic session focuses on developing project managers and strengthening project teams by reinforcing the PD skills and project management expertise that are essential for success in any project. It highlights the processes, tools and project stages that are involved in planning and executing difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as an example of such a project.

The underlying message is about how we, as project managers, need to reach new heights in the way we think and the actions we take to advance our profession and achieve breakthrough performance.

When you participate in this session, you will learn how to:

  • Empower team members to make critical decisions
  • Use hybrid methods of incorporating agile project management
  • Make prompt project decisions and take appropriate action
  • Effective collaboration and team interaction
  • Adapt to the environment and revised customer requirements
  • Continually identify and evaluate risks

Assertiveness: A Powerful Communication Skill For Career Success

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Register by December 10, 2018

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Assertiveness helps individuals break unproductive communication patterns, minimize defensiveness, solve problems and build trust in relationships. Learning how to express one's opinion, provide feedback to others and respond to criticism are all good reasons for becoming an assertive communicator.

In this experiential workshop, participants will understand the advantages of being assertive, reasons people are not assertive, know that an assertive communicator is never aggressive, and how passive behavior can lead to ineffectiveness and high dissatisfaction.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand reasons people are not assertive and the advantages of being assertive.
  • Compare and recognize passive, aggressive and assertive communication techniques.
  • Examine current personal assertiveness skill level.
  • Practice an assertive formula.
