"The Energy Executive Course delivers an all-aspect view of the issues, concerns, risks, and opportunities that the utility sector faces through world class instructors and guest speakers. The additional value of being able to interact and learn from colleagues who have indelibly seen nearly every problem or scenario is tantamount to having an executive coach that you can take with you after you leave the program that is only an email or phone call away when you need an answer or encounter a problem that you have never seen before."
