  2. 2. Why attend? “ I would certainly recommend the summit to others and I would love coming back” PEMEX Mexico “ The issues discussed have been absolutely relevant. This was a very good exposure” ELPER Oilfield Engineering (Nigeria) Ltd “ As a result of attending the Global Local Content Summit year on year, TPDC is in the process of coming up with a local content outline for the country” Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation There are many benefits of attending the Global Local Content Summit 2013; if we were to break them down into their two main components they would be networking and education. It can be difficult to quantify the value of networking to your business, but it remains an extremely important benefit to attending a conference as past delegates to Oil & Gas IQ events will testify. Education and Training: Oil & Gas IQ provides the best value for your business development, marketing and training budgets. Compare the number of practical case study presentations, networking opportunities and interactive discussion sessions to previous training courses you’ve attended. Knowledge Transfer: Spend several days among dedicated professionals and take advantage of the opportunity to learn, share experience, build contacts and evaluate the latest tools, technologies and strategies. With this value-centric approach, who needs a consultant when you can obtain valuable insights first-hand from industry leaders and innovators? Real-World Information: Expand your knowledge base, and add value to your organisation by learning how to implement and manage technology and strategies in a relaxed, user- friendly environment. Gain from the real-life experiences and challenges of your peers and colleagues. Concentrated Learning: Put yourself in a fully informed position about the latest solutions available through product demonstrations and consultative meetings or take advantage of specialist masterclasses to improve your efficiency and productivity. Detailed Information Pack: Your delegate pack will include detailed notes, presentation slides and associated whitepapers, so you can take valuable notes and records from the expert speakers. These will provide an invaluable tool for feeding back to your team when you are back in the office. Easier to measure are the learning and education benefits, of which there are many... including: • • +44 (0) 207 036 1300
  3. 3. Work smarter not harder “ It was very useful to know different approaches, views and results” KPO BV “ This event was completely aligned with my activities and the main issues were covered. Congratulations for the organisation and presentations” Petrobras A conference is not just a fun few days out of the office, it’s hard work! The conference is a full few days with a clear focus on learning and information exchange. Your day will start early, with networking opportunities at lunch followed by more learning in the afternoon. Prepare, prepare, prepare Setting goals and thinking about what you are looking to get out of the conference is vital. Coming to the conference prepared will mean that you have a clear focus during your time there. (Don’t forget to ask your manager what they are expecting from it too.) Increase team knowledge By creating a report on your time at the conference and your learning, you create benefits not only for yourself but also for your peers and company as a whole. Sharing what you’ve learnt at the conference will increase the ROI of your attendance considerably. All conference attendees receive copies of conference presentations - making it easy to share your newly acquired knowledge. Implement Information Apply what you’ve learned at the meeting and make a difference. Information you gain here — which can range from ground breaking strategies to recommended external partners, lowering cost and differentiation strategies — compared to the cost of the conference, could easily justify your attendance at Global Local Content Summit 2013. It just makes financial sense! Hiring an external resource of the same level as the industry experts at Global Local Content Summit 2013 could easily cost more than your delegate pass. By attending a conference you hear from an industry - leading speaker panel and get a range of experts’ views - as well as the problem solving, brainstorming and learning opportunities you benefit from as you network and join discussions with other attendees. Two brains are better than one, so imagine what a whole roomful of your industry peers can achieve! A unique learning experience The Global Local Content Summit 2013 offers a unique learning experience with speakers from all areas of the industry offering their knowledge and experience. Where else will you get that value and depth of learning? Your competitors will be there... can you afford to be left behind? • • +44 (0) 207 036 1300
  4. 4. And finally... We’ve put together a short letter, free for you to tweak and use in your internal decision-making process. Dear Sir/Madam, I would like you to consider approving my attendance at the Global Local Content Summit. You will find the conference agenda attached and below a summary of the key benefits that will have a direct impact on our company. If you need any further information please let me know and I will be happy to provide this. I realise that my attendance at the event requires an investment of both time and money, so I have put together a plan for a post- event report to ensure the company receives maximum return on investment. This conference offers a unique opportunity for our company to learn from leading experts in the sector and will enable me to network and build important business relationships. With an intensive programme of case studies, panel discussions and other key learning opportunities the conference offers knowledge that can be implemented once back in the office. Highlights this year include: • Special Focus on Latin America: An in depth look into Local Content development in Brazil and Mexico. Hear how policies and regulations have been implemented and how the key players involved are aligning their Local Content strategies • Focus on the Middle East: A special section dedicated to exploring Local Content developments in the Middle East. Hear updates from Saudi Arabia and Oman • New Frontiers in Eurasia: A special focus on developments in Local Content Policy and implementation in Eurasia including insight into Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. Hear how policies and regulations have been implemented and how the key players involved are aligning their Local Content strategies • Workshop Day: Take part in interactive workshop sessions designed to develop skills and facilitate practical learning. Take away strategies and insights that you can implement into your Local Content or sustainability programme I believe that my attendance at this conference would be an excellent use of this year’s training budget and offer great benefit to our organisation. Thank you in advance for considering my request. Please let me know if you need any further information at this point.
