ENTELEC 2018: Thank You For Advancing Our Capabilities at the Spring Conference
ENTELEC has been gathering since 1928 to share the latest education and technology with users in the energy, telecommunications, utility, and natural gas industries. After 90 years, we are still committed to moving these industries forward by pooling our collective resources in one gathering location.
This year’s ENTELEC Spring Conference and Expo at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston demonstrated the power of collaboration. We heard from industry leaders, policymakers, and vendors who are primed to capitalize on the latest opportunities for industry growth by working together. However, we also heard about roadblocks and obstacles that could slow our collective push forward.
ENTELEC Prepared Users to Meet the Challenge
As new technology has emerged, companies have realized that the only way to truly capitalize on these capabilities is through collaboration. That makes ENTELEC a powerful resource for our members because shared learning and experience is at the core of our user association.
During education sessions at ENTELEC 2018, we heard questions and discussions about how to tap into the latest technology when faced with roadblocks.
Your roadblock could be federal government regulations, access restrictions, or conflict with major infrastructure providers who are not keen on building systems for network connectivity in rural areas. You may even be frustrated by how close you are to realizing the full capabilities of available technology because of the significant positive impact it could have on your company.
ENTELEC is the place to work together to solve these problems and find solutions through our collective resources. To help bridge that gap, we were excited to see vendors displaying amazing technology to support companies, such as Virtual Reality, advanced wireless network systems, and software to manage a control room.
Alden Mills Captures the Power of Collaboration
ENTELEC was proud to feature former Navy SEAL Alden Mills as the keynote speaker for ENTELEC 2018. Alden spoke about the power of success through teamwork and collaborative efforts, which he also wrote about in his influential book, “Unstoppable.”
Alden inspired the room of ENTELEC members and vendors with his stories from the battlefield and through his lessons from the military and business leadership experience.
Alden’s military experience includes the distinction of a three-time No. 1 ranked Navy SEAL platoon commander. In business, Alden co-founded Perfect Fitness, has been awarded more than 40 patents, and has helped companies build, lead, grow, and innovate through successful collaboration.
