Our CEO, Chris Walcot, and VP of Business Development, Alison Richards, had an exceptional week at the New York Energy Capital Assembly curated excellently by The Energy Council.

We hosted a Roundtable focused on navigating the roadmap to a comprehensive ESG strategy. The discussions delved into the key pressures from internal and external stakeholders and explored how we can achieve energy security sustainably, emphasizing the critical role of digital technology.

Alison Richards reflected on the experience, saying, “Fantastic week in New York representing Progressive TSL. Thank you to The Energy Council for giving me the opportunity to moderate the ESG Strategies Roundtable, meet so many insightful energy leaders shaping the future of the sector, and finally take part in ringing the closing bell at the Nasdaq.”

Adding to the excitement, Chris and Alison had the unique experience of participating in the ringing of the closing bell at NASDAQ. To see Progressive TSL’s photo displayed on a Times Square billboard was truly an unforgettable moment.

Chris Walcot shared his thoughts: “Really engaging panel discussions at Nasdaq, and great networking events to keep us all busy in the evening. Never thought I would be pictured on the billboard at Times Square!”

Alison also attended the Women in Energy Luncheon, where she connected with female leaders and investors from across the energy industry for a fantastic afternoon of networking, fostering long-term connections and sharing insights on how diverse leadership can influence broad strategic visions that are setting up organisations for future success.

A huge thank you to The Energy Council for putting together such an engaging program. We are looking forward to building on the connections and insights gained this week.
