Permission to feel PROUD

It’s NOT just about the money – the explanation is embedded in this story – “SHARING IS CARING”

We are very pleased and proud that rp-squared have just finished our 10th & 11th virtual (online) Workshops; for an IOC that is drilling an extensive wildcat ("frontier") Exploration campaign in Mexico.

The workshops were a DWOP & an HSE x DWOP, the latter including a thorough briefing about the regulatory framework.

Ove rfour (4)  sessions, we welcomed 120 people (who had all been extensively trained in our 'Beyond Video Conferencing' delivery model).

Attendees joined from:

o   Houston, New York, Katy, New Orleans, Dallas, Knoxville, Sunningvale, Heritage Point, Galveston

·      Mexico

The technical break-out groups worked through 128 post-it notes, contributing a further 135 notes to the 'shared workspace' for a total of 263 discussion items. This led to 44 actions on the Action LOG (the same tool we use when providing HSE-Performance Coaches).

The HSE Groups Discussion raised 31 questions which resulted in an additional 33 responses.

Comments from participants:

" The virtual white board was excellent, best replacement so far for the stickies. Superb format, excellent facilitation",Well Engineering Mgr

We are now in final preparations for a DWOP-LWOP(Log)-SWOP (Supply) for a client in KL.

But the most joyful moment this week was inspired by the winner of the quiz that we held during the DWOP.  We donate to a charity of the winner’s choice.

Here’s what she had to say, “Thank you very much for increasing the donation and again for encouraging us to think about others".

I did another donation inspired by this one to clean the oceans.

Now that’s why we like to feel we made a difference!
