Thriving in the New World: Strengthen, Diversify, Innovate
The two Susans with very different journeys come together to tell their stories so that the listeners, especially those in the oil and gas industry, can avail themselves of their experience and education and find their paths in this new era.
Susan Morrice, resident of Denver and Co-Founder of Belize Natural Energy Ltd., known globally for its new Educo Educational System and holistic approach to the discovery of the first oil in Belize and winner of the Global Getenergy Educational Award for making the most empowering difference in a country/Belize competing against 50 countries. Susan was born in Ireland, studied Natural Sciences/Geology at Trinity College Dublin and came to the USA with the mindset to be an entrepreneur. She added to her education a critical component which she attributes her success to: attending the Educo Educational Series on understanding human potential, which helped her merge her understanding of the earth with her love of people and desire to make a difference in the world.
Susan Nash, Director of Innovation and Emerging Science/Technology for AAPG, began her journey as a petroleum geologist, where she worked for large operators, and then her own, which involved drilling and operating wells in Texas, Oklahoma, and other parts of the U.S. During dark times in the business, Nash diversified into developmental economics and also online education, where she earned degrees (M.A. and Ph.D.), and delivered training projects for USAID, World Bank, and other entities in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Paraguay, Kenya, Mozambique and other countries. Always fascinated by technology, in the late 1990s, Nash diversified into online education, instructional design, which provided a perfect framework for training, education, and technology transfer, both for universities (University of Oklahoma, Excelsior College) and later for professional associations (AAPG). Through it all, Nash has stayed active as a geologist, and as a promoter of innovation, technology, and the humanities to open doors for others.
