Once upon a time there was an oil rig called Ali Baba. It was built in Norway in 1976 and for many years it plied its ordinary trade searching for oil across the world. However in 1989, this rig became the focus of one of the North Sea’s most extraordinary stories – a story of how an ex-diver dreamed of developing his own oilfield. The cast of characters in this incredible but true story include the British Government, Davy International, Trafalgar House, Hong Kong Land, Kvaerner and the Finish State Oil company. The story charts the progress of this incredible dream from its humble beginnings, to its spectacular realisation and it’s final degeneration into a commercial and contractual nightmare.

Stephen Carver:

Stephen is rated as one of the top 3 lecturers at one of Europe’s top MBA Business Schools. He has a reputation of taking complex management concepts such as Project, Programme and Crisis Management and being able to distil them down, into highly informative and fun lectures – often using “storytelling” techniques. His attitude is “if you haven’t done it – you shouldn’t be teaching it!”

Unusually, for an academic, he has actually spent most of his working life in real business and still runs his own, highly successful, management repeat of the Challenger disaster – NASA had not truly learned the lessons of the past!

Prior to Cranfield University, Stephen worked on projects for the oil business before moving on to work at Virgin before working directly for a global CEO as head of Project & Programme Management Strategy. He has experience of Project and Programme Management in almost all business sectors from banks to oil and from construction to law firms. He has lectured and consulted globally and is highly experienced in presenting ideas in a way that bridges different cultural and organisational differences. He is an Honorary Fellow of The Institute of Risk Management and an Honorary Fellow of the Association of Project Management.
