Join us for the 2018 Calgary Branch AGM, featuring speaker John Myer, P.Eng., Senior Vice President, Oil Sands for Husky Oil Operations Limited.

With hundreds of projects big and small under his belt, plus decades of being responsible for production and operations, John Myer has a broader view of the Industry. Project execution has certainly evolved over the past 20 years. Globalization and new technology has introduced new ways of designing, building, managing, constructing and operating new projects. It has also introduced new risks and a need to develop a deep understanding of human differences. Technology has also evolved, allowing industry to continuously improve its environmental stewardship and how they operate.

These continuous developments also present challenges and opportunities to evolve our systematic approach to anticipating, identifying and mitigating hazardous situations into each project. An Operational Integrity Management system is critical to effectively managing the challenges associated with the changing world of project execution to ensure a safe and secure place for people to work and live in the communities where we operate.

Project execution is more than just the pots and pans – it's about the people that design, build and operate them. Diversity of our workforce is a critical consideration that challenges us to truly understand and capitalize on human differences that affect how we communicate and collaborate.

We invite you to join us to hear how Husky's approach to project delivery has evolved to keep up with the changing dynamics of project execution and the global economy and the things we can do after the project is built.
