The CEO Council for Growth observes that U.S. energy independence is now rapidly becoming a reality. It is reported that over 50 percent of all the wells drilled in the Marcellus Shale are located within a three-hour drive of Philadelphia. Based on proximity and resources, it appears that southeastern Pennsylvania has the potential to become an energy hub, and shipping site destination of choice. But as this wave of energy development begins to crest, it is important for businesses to understand both the opportunities presented and potential impact to the environment.

The next Neumann University Center for Leadership program examines how the energy industry is creating economic opportunities across a number of different sectors in Southeastern Pennsylvania. This module is designed for current and emerging public and private leaders, as well as those who are interested in envisioning a future of sustainable energy development and understanding its importance to our region. The program also focuses on ethical leadership, the challenges energy leaders face, avenues to success, and tools necessary to be an ethical leader. This module will generate an awareness of energy development as essential to future generations, and inspire attendees to enhance their ethical and visionary leadership skills.


Participants will develop a greater and deeper understanding of how the energy industry impacts southeastern PA, and appreciate the need for ethical leadership and the type of ethical challenges leaders encounter in today’s world. CLE participants will better understand the issue of energy development in southeastern PA and appreciate the challenges of the changing energy landscape to a client’s business.

FREE for Neumann students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents


In cooperation with the Delaware County Bar Association, Attorneys who attend the program will earn 2 CLE Credits (2 Substantive) and Accountants who attend will earn 2 CPE Credits (2 Other).
