IN 2017, A FEW HUNDRED SPHERA CUSTOMERS, INDUSTRY EXPERTS AND SPHERIONS HEADED TO AUSTIN, TEXAS, AND Brussels Belgium, for our inspire user conferences.
At the two events, attendees were treated to a bevy of training opportunities, a cornucopia of panel discussions and presentations, and a whole lot of fun—from getting the opportunity to get their picture taken on a long-horned steer either named RibEye or T-Bone to devouring delicious Texas barbecue in Austin to dining in the elegant Belga Queen restaurant in Brussels.
Sphera also awarded eight companies with Embracing Excellence Awards recognizing their commitment to keeping their workers safe, their products sustainable and their operations productive. In Austin, we had the opportunity to catch up with some of the winners and discuss their winning projects in separate interviews.
Wilfred Beijers is Chevron Corp.’s Impact solution adviser, Edward Kizys is The Sherwin Williams Co.’s senior information technology analyst, and Sue Gornick is World Oil Corp.’s vice president of Environmental Health & Safety. An edited transcript of our conversations follows.
If you would like to apply to be a 2019 Embracing Excellence Award winner, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send you an application. The winners will be announced at the inspire 2019 events in San Antonio and Barcelona, Spain.
