World Affairs Council of Greater Houston
The World Affairs Council of Greater Houston proudly presents the 23rd Annual Jesse H. Jones Award Luncheon honoring the 2021 International Citizens of the Year. We are pleased to honor bp’s Starlee Sykes and Alistair Vickers for their accomplishments in promoting Houston’s standing on the international stage as the Energy Capital of the World. Both Starlee and Al represent the city's past, present, and future, and we are delighted to dream about the future alongside them at Houston's international leadership luncheon. Sykes and Vickers join past honorees including Noble Energy's Dave Stover, Chevron's Jeff Shellebarger, and Jeff Miller of Halliburton.
The 23rd Annual Jesse H. Jones Awards is the Council’s premier event of the year, bringing together leaders in education, business, finance, global affairs, and more. Each year, the Jones Awards presents sought-after keynote speakers such as the Astros' Jim Crane, U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette, and 61st Secretary of State James A. Baker III. Please stay tuned for this year's speaker announcement!
Our shared passion for world affairs is what brings us together; we hope you’ll join us. [Organizer's description]
