Initially my role included the development and implementation of governance mechanisms, a formal Board reporting structure, and new business development. Over two years have elapsed, and now I can honestly say that no two days are alike. I am actively involved in the management of the industrial services lines for the group of companies – developing new partnership relations and helping the companies achieve their strategic objectives.
I love to travel – recently back from my honeymoon touring Argentina and Peru. Deciding where to go next is always on my mind. During the summer I love to be outside – hiking, walking – being active in general.
Lesley: Environmental concern, the management of human consumption and an opportunity to be innovative!
Lesley: I know I have been successful I can see/feel the impact I have made – i.e. when I can see positive growth in those that I lead or I can see the value that my ideas bring to the organization.
Lesley: Dynamic, Robust, Adaptable
Lesley: It is a great time in our province to join the industry. There are many exciting projects on the horizon and you don’t have to be an engineer or a technical specialist to get in on the action!
Lesley: Moving home after studying overseas and subsequently relocating to Toronto (and joining the O&G industry of course).
Lesley: Not so much a challenge as an opportunity to grow – being the only female and one of the youngest members of the management team. It gave me (and continues to give me) the opportunity to gain confidence in myself and my abilities.
Lesley: The opportunities are endless. We have some really exciting projects and partnerships underway and I have been actively engaged in our growth initiatives. I look forward to the challenges that are in-store and to delivering on the goals that I have set for myself.
Lesley: The Millennial Generation is characterized as being the most educated and technologically savvy group of individuals. I believe that this will undoubtedly lead to increased innovation and process improvement in the industry. At the same time, there has been some question regarding job loyalty amongst this generation and, as such, leaders are going to be forced to re-think leadership styles and define new ways of motivating the workforce – i.e. flexible work schedules, increased focus on professional development, etc.
Lesley: Mediums such as Linked-in provide a great venue to highlight skills and experience while being endorsed by your co-workers and leaders. It is a great way to connect with peers and colleagues and I think its use as a recruitment tool will increase.
Lesley: Travel! I can’t get enough of it. Every opportunity to jump on a plane I take it! I also love to cook. If I am bored, esr assured you’ll find me experimenting in the kitchen!
