Gas Matters: The NGLs Interview with Eric Smith  [#permalink]

FROM Tulane Freeman Admissions Blog: Gas Matters: The NGLs Interview with Eric Smith
ImageEric Smith, associate director of the Tulane Energy Institute at the A. B. Freeman School of Business, was interviewed in the March 2018 issue of Gas Matters about the emerging natural gas liquids (NGLs) market. Smith discussed the regions currently profiting from NGLs, how gas-focused E&P companies have marketed NGLs, and the likelihood of an NGL glut in the U.S.

“The moderator for the U.S. will be how much it puts into the export market. That’s true of LNG, as well as NGLs. We have capacity to produce both, and will continue to build new capacity to the extent that there’s an international market for the products. However, I suspect that even 20 years from now, we’ll still be exporting NGLs, as well as intermediates like olefins, and of course bulk plastics; just in different proportions.”

To read the article in its entirety, see The NGLs Interview: Eric Smith, associate director of the Energy Institute at the AB Freeman School of Business, Tulane University.

Student Entrepreneur Spotlight: Harrison Bamel of HB Productions, LLC  [#permalink]

FROM Tulane Freeman Admissions Blog: Student Entrepreneur Spotlight: Harrison Bamel of HB Productions, LLC
Image

Harrison has always been involved in the New Orleans music scene. In fact, he sites the tight-knit, grassroots community of artists here as one of his primary sources of inspiration. Bamel’s first “Fridays at the Quad” event at Tulane left him awestruck, thrilled to be at a school that was so ingrained with the music and culture of the city around it. But it wasn’t until sophomore year that he got involved in the music business. Harrison worked under the Marketing Director, recruiting and managing the promotional street team at The Howlin’ Wolf, a local music venue. He gradually gained responsibility and ultimately started booking shows for them as Marketing Team Manager.

Harrison toyed with the idea of branching out and starting his own company, but it was the spring of his sophomore year. He had plans to study abroad, to travel, to see the world. That mindset changed when Rick Farman, Tulane alum and co-founder of production company Superfly, came to speak on campus. During his lecture, Farman discussed how he got his start in the music industry—a story that directly parallels Bamel’s. Farman started by promoting for Tipitina’s, until he decided to spin-off and work independently. Fast-forward twenty years, and Superfly is responsible for the execution of acclaimed music festivals such as Bonnaroo and Outside Lands.

“I know that my path would have been quite different if I had not ended up in New Orleans studying at Tulane, which is why I am extremely grateful for the people I’ve met and opportunities I’ve had over the past four years. I would like to thank you, Nola, as I will forever know what it means to miss New Orleans.”

With a newfound role model and sparked motivation, Bamel cancelled his trip abroad and focused on creating his own venture. He registered HB Productions, LLC in the summer of 2016, and began networking. With help from Booking Representative Jake Titlebaum, Creative Counsel Matthew Eshagoff, and Operations Coordinator Jonah Flint, HB Productions was able to foster ongoing working relationships with New Orleans’ beloved Big Chief Juan Padro & The Golden Comanche Mardi Gras Indians, funk band SexualThunder!, and the up and coming Georgia based group Walden. 

The first big show the group put together was a fundraising event called “The Bayou Banger ft. SNBRN,” which raised nearly $5000 for victims of the catastrophic floods in Baton Rouge during the summer of 2016. HB Productions has since become a one-stop-shop, specializing in event management, artist booking, digital marketing, and promotional representation.

Adam Zuckerman reflects on China travels  [#permalink]

FROM Tulane Freeman Admissions Blog: Adam Zuckerman reflects on China travels
“By having dialogue, talking to people and stopping people, you’re going to have better relationships and see opportunity.”

This was the message Adam Zuckerman delivered during his talk, “Reflections on my Time in China.” On Tuesday, October 16th, The Shop at the Contemporary Arts Center hosted the innovator and entrepreneur for a discussion on everything from blockchain to China’s startup ecosystem. The event was part of a recent speaker series sponsored by the Lepage Center.

Zuckerman, who currently serves as Director of Ventures and Innovation at Discovery, Inc. was one of nine American leaders named to be 2018 Zhi-Xing China Eisenhower Fellows.

The prestigious award sent him, with a full-time interpreter by his side, on a four week journey throughout China. He and other fellows met leading thinkers across diverse fields, exchanged knowledge and ideas, and walked away with not only a wealth of experience, but a further developed international understanding.

Though his talk included analysis of topics like the country’s rapid industrial growth and how WeChat and QR codes are spearheading a cashless society, it was the numerous relationships formed that Zuckerman was most eager to highlight.

“30 meetings. 85 people. 7 cities.”

He cited one fascinating talk with the JD.com Innovation Director which, even though it didn’t start until late in the night, continued for three hours straight. But beyond the scheduled events and busy days of meetings, Zuckerman still found the time for meaningful interactions with locals. One such opportunity came when a young girl stopped him on the street to talk, seemingly curious about his uncommon complexion. Between her parents and his interpreter, the two could swap stories and share aspects of their culture.

These moments, he said, would not have been possible without the resources and unparalleled access granted to the fellows by the Chinese government and the Ministry of Education.

I found this human focus a refreshing change of pace from our technologically dominated society. More and more, our actions and experiences both in real life and on the web are becoming broken down into quantifiable numerical data.

This is not inherently wrong, and Zuckerman himself points out how China’s use of surveillance cameras and constant monitoring opens up exciting, if not intimidating, possibilities for algorithmically driven city planning. However, in a business world dictated by bottom lines, it’s easy to lose sight of the powerful impact new conversations can have toward tackling challenges and uncovering the next pathway to success.

Curiosity is at the heart of the entrepreneurial spirit and, as Zuckerman reminds us, you can never stop exploring.
