You will be prepared to face the media in the future if and when you suffer a Public Relations crisis.

The BP Gulf disaster cost that company tens of billions of dollars in market cap, in part, because of how poorly their executives handled the media during this Public Relations crisis. You can learn from their mistakes.

TJ Walker has conducted media training and Public Relations crisis communications training workshops for oil and gas industry executives from the Middle East to Texas to around the world. He will give you real world examples on exactly what to do and not do during a crisis.

If a  disaster hits your refinery, tanker, or well, the whole world is going to see it. The media will come calling. You must have good answers to fair questions. "No comment" will be interpreted as guilt of negligence and environmental law breaking. And bad answers will generate headlines around the world, especially if you claim that you "want your life back!"

You can't control all events surrounding a crisis and you can't control the media's questions, but you CAN control your message, your answers and your sound bites. If you are an energy executive, you owe it to yourself, your career and your company's brand to sign up today for the Crisis Communications Training for Oil and Gas Executives Course.

Digital Oil and Gas

How Digital Technologies Will Impact the Oil and Gas Industry

Created by Geoffrey Cann - Author, Professional Speaker, Trainer


Students: 1860, Price: $159.99

Students: 1860, Price:  Paid

Digital technologies are poised to make an impact on the oil and gas industry, but when? What will be the impacts? Which technologies will have the greatest impact? How big will the impact be? How will these technologies be best implemented? How can companies, suppliers, regulators and employees prepare for these changes? What does this mean for your oil and gas career?

The combination of COVID19 and the oil price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia (and the rest of OPEC), is creating great pressure on the industry to modernize as much and as fast as possible. Digital tools are among the few remaining ways that the industry can improve costs, productivity and climate impacts with one stroke.

This course (Version 2.0) is the on-line version of the one-day in-person seminar offered by the course instructor to oil companies and services companies around the world. Described as “the definitive guide to preparing your career for digital in oil and gas”, Digital Oil and Gas is a one-stop place to learn about digital in the industry.

Participants learn the terminology and backstory to digital innovation in the industry, a framework for thinking about digital technologies, the maturity and impact of leading technologies, and the likely opportunities in upstream, midstream and downstream.

The course is based on the bestselling book, ‘Bits, Bytes, and Barrels: The Digital Transformation of Oil and Gas’, available on Amazon, Audible, iTunes and many other on-line book shops.
