    Re-defining Success

    Welcome to the success edition of The OGM. In this edition, we are presenting a powerful palette of the definitions of success. After 22 years in the energy industry, I define success according to these seven energy virtues:

    Governments joining with oil companies so that they become majority shareholders in their own oil plays, and, consequently, “the people” delineate their own resources and reap the benefits along with the oil companies.

    1. Utilizing our oil and gas wealth to create a sustainable new energy world. It makes sense that the oil of today becomes the bridge to sustainable energy for the future.
    2. Utilizing our wealth and power generated in the energy industry to eradicate hunger with sustainable food systems that prevent hunger all together.
    3. Use the creativity, leadership, technology, innovation, and engineering of the energy industry to build sustainable cities where pollution is not an option.
    4. Utilize the power, influence, and creativity of the energy industry to bring in new standards for life, such as no war, no country borders, and preventing disease.
    5. Having technology be the catalyst for what unites us, fosters collaboration, and creates unprecedented sustainable change at exponential rates.
    6. Architecting the energy industry as an example and a culture that has no tolerance for drugs, alcohol, and crime.

    In this edition of The OGM, you will hear from thoughtful leaders who define success in personal messages like mastering listening to broader topics, such as building a sustainable carbon-free city and everything in between.

    We hope you enjoy our many definitions of success.

    30 years ago, Tina Olivero looked into the future and saw an opportunity to make a difference for her province and people. That difference came in the form of the oil and gas sector. Six years before there was even a drop of oil brought to the shores of Newfoundland, she founded The Oil and Gas Magazine (THE OGM) from a back room in her home on Signal Hill Road, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A single mother, no financing, no previous journalism or oil and gas experience, she forged ahead, with a creative vision and one heck of a heaping dose of sheer determination. With her pioneering spirit, Ms. Olivero developed a magazine that would educate, inspire, motivate and entertain oil and gas readers around the world — She prides herself in marketing and promoting our province and resources in unprecedented ways. The OGM is a magazine that focuses on our projects, our people, our opportunities and ultimately becomes the bridge to new energy outcomes and a sustainable new energy world. Now diversifying into the communications realms, a natural progression from the Magazine, The OGM now offers an entirely new division - Oil & Gas Media. Today, The Oil and Gas Magazine is a global phenomenon that operates not only in Newfoundland, but also in Calgary and is read by oil and gas enthusiasts in Norway, Aberdeen, across the US and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East. Believing that Energy is everyone’s business, Ms. Olivero has combined energy + culture to embrace the worlds commitment to a balance of work and home life as well as fostering a foundation for health and well being. In this era of growth and development business and lifestyle are an eloquent mix, there is no beginning or end. Partnering with over 90 oil and gas exhibitions and conferences around the world, Ms. Olivero's role as a Global Visionary is to embrace communication in a way that fosters oil and gas business and industry growth in new and creative ways.
