A favor (and a bribe), new YouTube speech

In this issue:

  • A favor (and a bribe)
  • New YouTube speech

As I mentioned last week, I had a great event speaking to gas station owners and suppliers recently at the SIGMA executive leadership conference. At one of the dinner events someone kindly asked me, “What can we do to help you have greater impact?”

One of my top answers was: recommend me as a speaker for high-level events at companies, associations, and conferences.

In the last week some of the SIGMA members have been gracious enough to do just this. One executive wrote to an association that holds high-level events:

“A couple of weeks ago, while attending SIGMA’s Executive Leadership Conference, I had the privilege of attending a couple of educational sessions put on by Alex Epstein. Alex wrote the book The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, which is an excellent read. During the SIGMA meeting, Alex made a compelling case as to why the nation’s discussion into fossil fuels is framed entirely wrong and how we in the “industry” can reframe it. In any event, I wanted to electronically introduce you to Alex who is copied on this email. I think Alex may be a good resource for REDACTED in many ways, not the least of which is as a public speaker for future REDACTED meetings.”

Here’s the favor:

Part 1: Think for 60 seconds about the following question: “Do I know anyone involved with high-level events that I can recommend Alex to?”

Part 2: Take 5 minutes and write them an email with the following, CC’ing me.

  • That you’ve seen me speak
  • Why you liked it
  • Why I might be a good fit for one of their upcoming events

And here’s the bribe: For every introduction you make I’ll send you an “I Love Fossil Fuels” t-shirt or a signed copy of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels.

A new speech on YouTube

Last October I gave the keynote speech at Energy Day, the most significant annual energy event in Peru. The event was hosted by the firm Laub & Quijandría, led by Anthony Laub, and a video of it is now available online. You can watch it here.
