Laurie H. Argo, senior V.P. of crude oil and refined products at Enterprise Products Partners, opened as keynote speaker at Day Two of the 2016 Women's Global Leadership Conference (WGLC). Her talk focused in on how to succeed in a commercial role. Making a distinction between hearing vs. listening, Argo elaborated on the qualities necessary to succeed as a leader and as a professional.

Following lunch and a networking session, Emeliana Rice-Owley, V.P. of exploration at Petronas, served as the afternoon keynote speaker. She discussed what matters when taking on a leadership role and how to drive performance, including knowing your stuff, and having the confidence necessary to make decisions and get the job done; having clarity of purpose; and having the energy to achieve your goals. She used personal experiences as a professional, as well as a mother, to illustrate ways to progress and improve performance.

In addition to multiple panel discussions throughout the day, other guest speakers at the WGLC included Tyra M. Metoyer, manager of external mobilization at the American Petroleum Institute (API); Priya Aswani, data solution architect at Microsoft Corp.; Allyson Anderson Book, executive director at American Geosciences Institute; and Marcus Noland, executive V.P. and director of studies at Peterson Institute for International Economics. Many of whom contributed their thoughts on topics including technology development, big data, diversity, and acceleration of the big crew change.
