"When we are confronted by any crisis, the period of recovery often offers opportunities to emerge better and stronger than before. If we are imaginative, innovative, and perhaps a bit patient, we can deliver a superior and more valuable experience in attending our conferences with the bonus of making them accessible to more of our members. I believe that we can and will emerge from this challenging time as a stronger SPE, able to deliver more to our members".
In this episode, Shauna Noonan discusses strengthening the SPE Conference Experience.
Each month, Shauna joins The SPE Podcast to discuss her President's Column and to share her SPE journey. We'll end each of these podcasts asking the audience an interactive question.
Of all the programs that SPE offers, the most rewarding and enjoyable ones for me personally are the conferences. I love walking the floor of an exhibition hall, discovering the latest technology advancements, and listening to the various product demonstrations. I look forward to running into fellow SPE members in the vast conference halls and catching up on what they’ve been doing since we last met. When exiting the room of a technical session, I like being able to turn to the person next to me and ask their opinion about the presentations we just heard. Finally, I relish being able to attend the receptions and luncheons to network with industry colleagues. I attribute most of my career achievements to those moments of connecting with others and learning from them during SPE conferences.

We all need to remember that COVID-19 is not going to be causing disruption and trouble to mankind for ever. There will be a time when large gatherings, close personal interactions and extensive travel will return to normal. What we need to do is to improve the ability of making conferences both live and virtual at the same time, as the members will benefit much more from SPE than what they get today from the old analog interactions. I don't know the statistics, but attendance at events be they
