Oil and gas entrepreneur T Boone Pickens is the keynote speaker at the NationaLease 68th annual meeting September 16-17, in Baltimore MD. His speech will address the future of US energy use and how organizations can adapt accordingly.
Viewed as one of the nation’s most effective energy experts, Pickens says he is on a mission to enhance US energy policies to lessen the nation’s dependence on OPEC oil. It is a reliance he views as the greatest threat to America’s national security and economic well-being.
Cited by President Barack Obama for his leadership in developing “The Pickens Plan” for America’s energy future, the entrepreneur and visionary has long been an advocate for harnessing domestic alternatives and developing even greater new technologies. He has an accurate track record of predicting oil and gas prices. As a result, he is a frequent guest on some of the nation’s most-watched business programs.The cable television news channel CNBC has coined him the “Oracle of Oil.”
Pickens grew from humble beginnings in Depression-era Holdenville OK, to become one of the nation’s most successful businessmen. Ranked by Forbes as one of the world’s richest people, he also is a committed philanthropist who has donated nearly $1 billion to charity.
The NationaLease annual meeting unites speakers, industry experts, representatives from NationaLease companies, and exhibitors to find solutions for issues such as improving customer service, reducing operating costs, making the most of national accounts, and NationaLease membership.
