The Energy Leaders Dinner

An executive dinner discussion for leaders of the energy sector

The Crisis Advantage: Business Resilience with Real-time Technology

The energy industry is a critical part of a nation’s infrastructure. With its customers hugely dependent on the delivery of their services, resilience should be an essential value of any energy company. A delayed response can result in significant revenue loss, reduced production, and reputational damage. In today’s digital era, finding new ways to take advantage of technology should play a big role in managing a crisis.

The Ortus Club, in partnership with Dataminr, is bringing together a select group of senior energy and utility executives for a dinner discussion on the ways in which real-time information can provide a critical advantage during a crisis. We will be discussing:

  • What are the biggest factors that affect the energy sector in times of a crisis?
  • What are the critical activities, processes, or functions that need to be prioritized for effective crisis management?
  • How are companies preparing for crisis management to safeguard their brand, managing reputational risk and productivity?
  • In what ways have advancements in technology impacted the energy sector’s response plans and how they would handle a crisis?

6:30 pm: Arrival of guests and drinks reception
7:00 pm: Welcome by The Ortus Club and address by Dataminr
7:10 pm: Discussion instigated by the moderator and continued by the group over dinner
8:00 pm: Discussion comes to a close and guests are encouraged to continue networking
