FAMOUS 5 SPEAKER SERIES: SUZANNE WEST | June 21, 2017

She’s the President and CEO of Imaginea Energy. A Fearless leader. A Visionary.

She is going to change the world and she’s going to do it by getting other people to change the world with her. Imaginea is her latest venture and one of five companies that, over the past 15 years, she has successfully built from scratch. She spent her early days receiving an engineering degree from the University of Calgary, then spent the first 11 years of her career as a reservoir engineer and in various leadership positions in large corporations.

Her truly laudable career has crystallized into an epiphany that profits are not the enemy of this planet and the people on it. That oil doesn’t have to be a dirty word. That change can happen, and it will happen because its the smart thing to do.

Purchase a single ticket or up to a table of ten at famou5.ca.
