It is rightly said “The way of the world is meeting people through other people.” In the oil and gas industry it becomes all the more essential to meet and network with professionals for growth opportunities, sharing experiences, and making new friends.
Emphasizing the same thought, a YP Meet was organized by the Mumbai SPE Section, which provided 40 enthusiastic YPs an excellent platform to network and share their experiences. The speakers for the day, Manoj Mohapatra (marketing manager, Schlumberger) and Ajay Kumar (consultant petrophysicist, BG India), encouraged discussions among the group, making the atmosphere light and interactive. The icing on the cake was various fun-filled activities such as an ice breaker, walkarounds, and a team-building activity. YPs were asked to build a bridge in a stipulated period of time; this activity was applauded by everyone. These activities were designed to allow YPs to meet and network with their peers while illustrating the importance of networking and teamwork to YPs.
The event was very well received by the YPs. The SPE Mumbai YP Section will continue to address subjects involving YPs and to provide them broader avenues by which to explore and grow through its activities. The SPE Mumbai Section YP team is thankful to Schlumberger and especially S. Ramamurthy for hosting this event.
