Here on the panel, giving Canadian and U.S. views, the CEOs grappled with the big issues: from Manitoba Hydro is Jay Grewal and from PNM Resources is Pat Vincent-Collawn, moderated by former CEO of CPS Energy, Paula Gold-Williams. Listen in.
Moderator and former CEO, CPS Energy, Paula Gold-Williams: We are going to have a conversation about change and the aspect of the abnormal, things we thought wouldn't happen, all happening in a perfect storm, and navigating through the times we have right in front of us.
When you see a pandemic move as quickly as COVID-19, and sustained across our globe, when you see the disruption caused to the financial markets, when we now see growing inflation, and supply chain markets disrupted. We see the Ukraine being invaded by Russia and starting to feel the pressures that go along with global markets and energy.
