The energy sector is going through significant change and global energy markets are under pressure.

How do we make sense of what is happening? Which issues are more significant? How do we separate the noise from the signal?

Peter Duncan AO has been the Chairman of Orica and of Scania Australia. Previously he was Chairman of Shell Australia and Shell New Zealand. He has been a director of Woodside Petroleum, The National Australia Bank and the CSIRO. He is a governor of CEDA; past Chair of the Cranlana Programme Foundation and a past Chair of the Australian German Association. He is a past member of the Committee for Melbourne and the Australian German Chamber of Commerce. During his career with Shell he held a number of significant leadership roles and in various countries around the world. He was a founding committee member of the Melbourne Forum.

Guiding this conversation is Peter Lamell who has served on over 25 boards across energy, power, services, technology, telecommunication and not-for-profits. He brings a focus on culture change, sustainability and digital transformation. An experienced CEO and senior executive he has worked in the UK, US, Europe, Asia/Pacific, Canada and Australia. Peter is a former director of Melbourne Forum.

There is no doubt that the energy sector is a key issue and who better to give a view than two industry veterans.
