Paul Michael Wihbey
Paul Michael Wihbey is a founding partner of Connect Global Strategies, an international boutique consulting firm based in Edmonton, Alberta. Paul Michael was born in the US and raised in Montreal, resulting in his dual US-Canadian citizenship. He has honorably served both nations in various capacities from leading a Canadian Parliamentary delegation to Lebanon, to energy related war-gaming lectures at the United States Marine Corps’ War College and Head Quarters in Quantico, Virginia.
He is a highly respected strategic planner and initiator of energy-related projects advising in Alberta and Saskatchewan, including FirstEnergy Capital; Alberta Enterprise Group’s Alberta Investment Conferences in Geneva and DC.
He is a published author on the future of global oil, adjunct Professor at the Emerald Energy Institute, University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria, a politically independent Washington analyst and an international keynote speaker at numerous energy conferences in the Persian Gulf, Africa and Europe.
From China to Keystone XL to the demise of Peak Oil Theory to the Rise of the Unconventionals and the threat to NAFTA, Paul Michael has consistently been accurate in his forecasts and predictions.
In February 2016, several months prior to the US presidential election, the leading French language business newspaper in Switzerland, “L’AGEFI” of Geneva, published a front-page interview with Paul Michael that addressed the economic and foreign policy agenda of a Trump presidency, which Paul Michael believed would be the result of that election.
With his special and astute knowledge of the incoming Trump Administration, Paul Michael can speak with unparalleled authority and specificity as to the plans, policies and priorities of the Trump White House in energy, environment and trade affecting the business communities of Alberta and Western Canada.
He will bring that expertise and knowledge base, derived from extensive research, an array of multi-sector experiences and well-placed global sourcing, to our discussion.
His contribution to this event is not simply to provide unique and useful information to our guests, but to forecast those White House moves in both energy and trade that will have real world impact on your companies (markets; capital investment; taxes; stock valuation and much more).
