SHP’s community relations specialist, Alex Rothwell, was a panelist at Western States Petroleum Association’s annual conference. She participated in a discussion on “Why Millennials Matter”. As a millennial, Alex was valuable in giving insight on her perspective on this topic. She provided advice to oil and gas industry executives and associates on how to better understand and engage the millennial generation in the work force. She also shared ideas on how the industry can better reach millennials through messaging and branding. The other panelists included Morley Winograd, (author, speaker and millennial guru), Libby Hall (Director of Client Services & Social Media Expert at Unearth) and the panel’s moderator Simon Mainwaring (Founder and CEO of We First).
