The idea for Next Gen Geo came out of the frustration of a few young geoscientists who had the misfortune of graduating in the bottom of the commodity cycle. Jobs were scarce but our group didn’t want to give up on the dream of a career in the natural resource sector. One of the really great things about our industry are the stories you hear. Many of our group would be individually meeting various industry gems and hearing their stories over a coffee… then we had the idea of having a seminar where our whole group could hear the story over a beer! Needless to say, it was a popular idea and Next Gen Geo was born.
