During the final Women’s Energy Network Houston Chapter luncheon of the year, Energy Workforce CEO Leslie Beyer spoke about her background and life lessons learned over the course of her career at White House Executive Office of the President and the National Association of Manufacturers. She attributes opportunities throughout her life to her network, being ready to take a risk and willingness to adapt.
“No outcome is ever 100% certain and taking a risk involves straying out of your comfort zone and stepping into the unknown. But taking a risk in life can catapult you toward success and drastically increase the chances of achieving your goals.”Leslie Beyer, CEO, Energy Workforce & Technology Council
Beyer discussed how many of the lessons in risk-taking and finding solutions are applicable to the energy services sector, which she now represents as CEO of Energy Workforce & Technology Council. The energy services sector has traditionally been known for its technology and innovation – enabling the shale revolution and driving energy expansion. She said the sector is uniquely positioned to address the energy trilemma of today — finding a balance between security, affordability and sustainability — and she is optimistic about the sector and energy industry as a whole.
Her leadership in the energy industry and of the largest association representing global energy service and technology companies has earned Beyer numerous accolades, including Hart Energy’s Top 25 Women in Energy in 2021, Energy Transition Economist 100 Women of the Energy Transition in 2021, and Houston Business Journal’s Most Admired CEOs in 2022.
Energy Workforce is proud to support organizations like the Women’s Energy Network Houston Chapter, which plays an important role in fostering career and leadership development of women who work in the energy industry across the value chain.
