Testimonials

  • I used to believe that the energy business is already fully saturated with conferences; however Monika has shown that she has the tenacity and creativity to surprise even the most jaded conference attendee. Monika understands the energy business as well as any industry executive, and organizes events to ensure that each attendee walks away impressed.

    – Jeff Hammad, Vice President, Commercial at Golden Pass LNG

  • The North American Gas Forum takes on the pressing issues in the industry and examines them through the view of the leaders who are tackling them every day. The forum attracts a high-level expert group of industry insiders whose caliber grows each year. I look forward to Direct Energy’s continued participation in the future.

    – Badar Khan, President and CEO, Direct Energy

  • This is an outstanding forum and a great collection of very senior people both from industry and government with a great exchange about opportunities and trends in the natural gas industry. These are exciting times and this conference brings a lot of key people together.

    – Bruce McKay, Managing Director of Federal Affairs, Dominion

  • Some of the key things we look at when attending these type of events are the program, the level of attendees and the networking opportunities. On all three fronts we are very pleased with the results from the North American Gas Forum.
