 "The Central America Energy Sector:

O&G and Electricity Markets and Investment Opportunities"

Thursday, July 9, 2020; 9:00 - 10:15 am U.S. Eastern Time

Presenter: Oscar Rolando Rodríguez González, PE, MBA

     CEO, Estrategias de Inversión / Energy and Infrastructure Analysis Center in Guatemala 


In Central America the energy sector, mainly the electricity subsector, has grown strong and dynamic mainly due to the following factors: changes in regulatory frameworks and the existence of a regional electricity market or MER. On the other hand, even though the O&G subsector is interesting and offers important opportunities (mainly upstream), reserves are only found in Guatemala due to its closeness to important Mexican O&G reservoirs. This presentation explains, in a broad sense, Central America’s energy sector characteristics and its potential for profitable investments.

 "Change Management: What Makes the Difference between Failure or Success"

Thursday, 16 July 2020; 9:00 - 10:00 am U.S. Eastern Time

Presenter: Geert Letens, PhD, CPEM, ASEM Fellow

LQ, Founding Partner in Belgium

Geert Letens

The COVID-19 crisis has made it very clear that we live in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, where continuous change has become the new normal. However, implementing change in organizations is a daunting task: for more than three decades researchers have reported failure rates of change initiatives of 70%. The batteries of change provide a powerful instrument for organizations to generate the required positive energy for change to align their change ambition with their change readiness. In this webinar Geert Letens, co-author of the six batteries of change, will clarify how organizations need to develop the change capabilities that are essential to their context to achieve a change success rate of 95%. Further building on the concepts and principles that underly the batteries of change model, he will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the batteries of change and vice versa. Whereas the crisis certainly imposes an immediate threat to most companies, it can also provide an opportunity to become a more agile organization.

  • What are they key messages behind the batteries of change energy profile of an organization?
  • Where do I start as a function of the battery profile of my organization?
  • Case study - how can you build a critical mass of committed change leaders?
  • How can we relate the batteries of change with the current COVID-19 crisis?

"How Can Engineers Become More Enterprising?"

Thursday, 1 October 2020; 9:00 - 10:00 am U.S. Eastern Time

Presenter: Prof Simon Philbin, PhD, CPEM, London South Bank University

Engineers need to have a full grasp of the technical competencies across traditional engineering areas, including numerical skills as well as an ability to be effective in knowledge-driven organisations through working as part of engineering teams and projects. But will this be enough for the engineer of the future? The webinar will address this question through discussing how engineers can become more enterprising from practicing innovation and entrepreneurship as well as gaining broader professional skills. 

Professor Simon P. Philbin

The webinar will also include a summary of the work of the Nathu Puri Institute for Engineering and Enterprise at London South Bank University in the United Kingdom, which is focused on helping engineers to gain access to the latest knowledge and tools to help them become more enterprising – creatively developing an idea from concept through to a new product or service as well as being entrepreneurial to develop a new business venture.
