The Honorable Rex Tillerson, the nation’s 69th Secretary of State and former President, Chairman and CEO of Exxon, will provide the keynote address at KPMG’s 17th Annual Global Energy Conference (GEC) on June 5 in Houston at 1:05 pm EDT.

Two other top presentations will also be available for live stream, including the “Future trends in geopolitics and the economy” panel featuring KPMG’s chief economist Constance Hunter. Register for the live stream here.
You can also register for the live stream of the keynote from Leonard Brody, VC, author, and media commentator, who will explain how to deal with the questions the future holds, and how energy organizations can harness the uncertainty they’re faced with and turn it into excitement, innovation, and success.
After a lifetime in the energy industry, Tillerson is intimately familiar with the various challenges facing energy companies to manage the geopolitical risks of cross-border operations; find the budget to invest in new technologies amidst price volatility and regulatory change; and meet the demands of new generations of customers and employees, including the call to reduce the sector’s environmental impact. He’ll share his thoughts with the in-person and virtual attendees of the GEC in a fireside chat format on June 5.
"It's not a revelation to say that energy is evolving on virtually every level – from production, distribution, price, and storage – to technology and regulation and beyond,” said Regina Mayor, Global Sector Head and U.S. National Sector Leader for Energy and Natural Resources at KPMG.
“As an industry," she added, "we must recognize these changes and collectively respond. The GEC will spur new thinking, provide perspective on changes and challenges, and offer invaluable networking with prominent leaders in the industry.”
