Pat Lipovski, International Executive Specialist, Envision Group, led the initial seminars with co-facilitators from Envision Group, an innovative global leader in corporate advising and coaching. The seminars were held at Exterran.

In addition to the biannual seminars, participants must engage in leadership development outside their company and attend two PESA Leadership Meetings, such as the bimonthly Leadership Forums. One of the most important elements of the program is the mentorship provided by the PESA Board and Advisory Board Members, giving participants a unique opportunity to gain strategic career advice and develop valuable relationships with industry leaders.
