The Colder War: Blender sponsors event for NYT bestseller
As December came to a close, we were excited to sponsor a gathering in downtown Vancouver of some of the most influential people in the global resource sector, brought together to honour New York Times bestselling author Marin Katusa and his book The Colder War: How the Global Energy Trade Slipped from America’s Grasp.
The event featured a panel of some of the biggest names in the industry, including GoldCorp Chairman Ian Telfer, Copper Mountain CEO Jim O’Rourke, Casey Research CEO Oliver Garret, and Uranium Energy Corporation President and CEO Amir Adnani. Each speaker shared his insights about the industry, poked fun at Marin’s success, and praised the new book. The panel was emceed by our very own Blender president Arash Adnani.
Each member on the panel spoke of Katusa’s fresh new ideas and meteoric rise. “He’s bringing an intellectual intensity to our business and it’s going to serve him very well,” says GoldCorp’s Ian Telfer.
In a special segment before the panel, the attendees got to hear from former U.S. Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham via video conference. Abraham shared his thoughts on oil’s price drop and on The Colder War.
The event yielded a great turnout; friends, colleagues, and industry leaders attended to support Katusa and celebrate his great success. We’re happy all could make it!
