Want to bring out your visionary capacity and make a difference in the world? What is your mind-set?
Susan Morrice is a true believer that the mind is the technology behind all technologies! This workshop is for anyone who has asked … “What can I do to make a difference in the world?”
Susan, a geologist originally from Ireland, went to Belize on the request of UK oil man Sir Ian Rankin, to assess the oil potential. There were 50 dry holes and a negative industry mind-set that there was no oil in Belize. But Susan had already fallen in love with the country and its people, and met Mike Usher, a Belizean who also felt that there was oil and when discovered would make a real difference in his country.
Fast forward to today and their vision has become a reality. But how … ??
Belize Natural Energy Ltd (BNE) made national history when they discovered the country’s first oil in their very first well – named after Susan’s business partner Mike Usher. Not only did BNE beat all the odds by discovering oil on the first well but the oil (40 degree gravity) was so light it went into the local generators without refining!!
BNE is 98% Belizean and is the number one revenue generator in the country. They are renowned world-wide for their totally holistic business model, which is helping transform the country with a new educational system. Leading from the inside out, and ground floor up!
Susan is a true entrepreneur, an avid supporter of young professionals, an advocate for diversity and empowering woman in the workplace, and a highly regarded expert in the energy industry. In this workshop she will share the steps she took to make her vision of Belize a reality. And help you take the steps to follow your own dreams and ideals, to achieve your goals and bring out the visionary capacity that is dormant in so many of us.

Susan and BNE have together become a global oil industry beacon that has made a real difference in the country of Belize. It was through Susan gift of exploration, and her understanding of how to tap into the power of human potential that she was able to find oil in Belize where it was believed by all of the Majors in the Oil industry that there was none.
