Meet your SPE Young Professionals committee:
SPE WA also supports the development of new additions to the industry through the SPE WA Young Professional group. The SPE WA YP team aim to be a platform for new and upcoming members of the petroleum industry to develop their technical and soft skills as well as network with their peers across the industry. Ongoing technical development is delivered via our Tech 101 Series, held every second month and proudly sponsored by Halliburton. The series of lunch and learn events are aimed at providing a broad look into a particular technical aspect of our industry, e.g. Flow Assurance 101 and Sand Control Selection 101.
Alongside these technical sessions, the development of soft skills is also crucial so we ensure there are a number of networking opportunities provided to our members. We host joint networking events, partnered with firms involved with the petroleum industry as well as other industry societies. Events such as the joint Deloitte, SPE, AAPG and PESA networking sundowner provide a platform for likeminded YPs to network with their peers as well as listening to a keynote speaker give their advice to our industry’s young professionals.
We understand that life isn’t just about networking and developing technical skills so the SPE WA YP team aims to host a number of social events throughout the year. From formal events such as the Annual Young Professionals Gala Dinner to more informal events like our Annual Trivia Night, there is an abundance of opportunities for our newer members of the industry to expand their professional network in a relaxed, social setting.
In addition to providing these services to industry young professionals, SPE WA YP also helps to develop the future leaders of the industry. The ongoing Ambassador Lecture Program has young industry members visiting schools and universities to share their career experiences as well as discuss the opportunities available in the world of Oil and Gas.
