Over the past couple of years, Furniture Connection has not only established a strong presence in Calgary and Alberta but has also expanded its services across western Canada, encompassing British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.
While our involvement in this event differed significantly in terms of services and scale, the connection remained strong.
It resides not only in my memories and heartfelt ties to the oil and gas industry but also in the tangible present. Furniture Connection takes immense pride in supporting the rapidly growing LNG industry in Canada. We eagerly look forward to engaging in more ventures like this one, forging connections and contributing to the industry's success.
As someone who had previously served as a keynote speaker, exhibitor, sponsor representative/speaker, and moderator in the oil and gas industry, I was thrilled to gain an inside look at the intricacies of conference preparation and organization.
In February 2021, I made a life-changing decision to shift gears after a fulfilling 30-year career in the oil and gas industry. It was time to wholeheartedly devote myself to leading Furniture Connection Ltd. My previous journey included two incredibly rewarding years at LNG Canada, nestled in the picturesque town of Kitimat, British Columbia. This choice didn't happen overnight; it was a thoughtful process that unfolded over the course of a year. The relentless pace of work, the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the internal restructuring within Furniture Connection, and our remarkable growth trajectory left little room for contemplation about leaving the oil and gas engineering/management world. I didn't dwell on "what ifs" or indulge in self-doubt.
