In Detail

As Shell President, Mr. Hofmeister launched an extensive outreach program, unprecedented in the energy industry, to discuss critical global energy challenges. The program included an 18 month, 50-city engagement program across the country during which Hofmeister led 250 other Shell leaders to meet with more than 15,000 business, community and civic leaders, policymakers, and academics to discuss what must be done to ensure affordable, available energy for the future. He earned Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Political Science from Kansas State University. In 2010 he was awarded an honorary doctorate of letters from the University of Houston.


John's presentations offer rare insight about how the industry and special interests work and how the government approaches energy issues. He shares practical, understandable ideas on the spectrum of energy, from green to coal to gas, and solutions you would not expect from a former Shell Oil President.
