To date, there are very few women in aviation. In fact, the numbers from an international trade group called Women in Aviation, says that only about 4% of the 500,000 non-pilot jobs in the United States are filled by women. It is this type of inequality that I see as the sort of challenge that drives me to precipitate change. It is that drive and spirit that assisted me and my partners when we discovered oil in Belize. It’s that more »
Many people ask me questions about energy production and exploration, our approach and how we address environmental concerns. Fortunately, I was able to become involved with a colleague of mine who is working directly with young students. She is has a curriculum focusing on energy, the economy and business. I worked with her to come up with these questions that are pretty common in my profession. I thought I would share them with you! SUSAN MORRICE Chairman, Belize Natural Energy more »
Susan uncovers the power to make her biggest dreams come true from a Tony Quinn two-week Seminar…
Texas…the land of cowboys, oil and cattle. My first experience with the unique state occurred back when I first moved to America and was traveling from the South to Colorado. I was driving through the panhandle with just my dog, when I stopped my car in a fairly desolate portion of the countryside. I didn’t know it at the time, but I experienced being completely present in that moment, which is one of the things I learned years later at more »

Through Tony Quinn’s Educo seminar, I have met many people that are talented, inspiring and gifted. I truly believe that through Dr. Quinn’s seminar, individuals learn how to recognize negative thoughts that have held them back in the past. This recognition helps all of us unlock talents and gifts we never knew we had by preventing negative thought that so easily enter our minds. This allows us to follow the spirit within us all and achieve great things. Confidence, faith more »
I was honored to be invited the Pushkin Trust’s 25th anniversary dinner held at the brand new Titanic Belfast building in the heart of the Titanic Quarter. If you haven’t had the chance to visit this exhibit, you must make it a priority when visiting Belfast. The Northern Ireland Tourism Board identified it as one of five key tourism projects to enhance Northern Ireland’s tourism. I have to say, the revitalization of this portion of Belfast makes me very proud. more »

The IF’s mission is “to be the largest network of friends of Ireland dedicated to supporting programs of peace and reconciliation, arts and culture, education and community development throughout the island of Ireland.” Over the years, I think they have accomplished this in an impressive fashion. They have been around for over 35 years and currently have chapters around the globe. Since 1976 they have raised over $430 million dollars for these great programs and are one of the largest private funding sources for programs on the island of Ireland.
When we first started Belize Natural Energy, we knew that a main focus of ours was how to be socially, morally and environmentally responsible in a country where we had never done business. When we first started exploring for energy in Belize, it was still quite behind the rest of the world in terms of innovation, technology and just basic commerce. Being a small country, both geographically and in terms of population, Belize didn’t have the resources to inspire and more »
Independent Finds Right Fit In Belize BELMOPAN, Belize–Global giants in the international crude oil exploration, drilling and production industry tend to enjoy advantages when it comes to economies of scale and easy access to funding. But it is becoming clear that in the hunt for frontier oil, those advantages may be no match for the nimble agility and persistent mindset of small independent explorers and producers. More and more, developing countries are choosing independents as they shift toward more holistic more »
I have always loved the arts. Literary, visual and performing arts have always held a special place in my heart. They engage every emotion from joy to fear to sadness and remind us of that spirit we all have inside of us but don’t always connect with. I have the utmost respect for the artists of these disciplines and believe their work is integral to a community. This is why I am happy to support the Lyric Theater in my more »

The author, Rhonda Byrne, communicated our story of how we succeeded where everyone else had failed through the laws of attraction and positivity. This mindset results in increased health, wealth and happiness, which was undoubtedly true in our case. While the financial success of BNE is more »
By Simon Romero The New York Times SPANISH LOOKOUT, Belize, Feb. 17 — Near this small Mennonite town carved out of the thick jungle, a farmer dug a shallow water well a few years ago and found a viscous black liquid seeping into the water. Given Belize’s disappointing record of oil exploration, stretching back to its years under British rule, nearly everyone shrugged at the story except a stubborn Denver geologist. Michael Stravato for The New York Times Jake Letkeman, more »

Belize Natural Energy (BNE) has grown from just a dream seven years ago to today being a global oil industry beacon that has transformed a nation in Central America – an amazing success story when you consider that 96% of the BNE workforce are Belizean and just seven short years ago there was no infrastructure or skilled oil industry labour in the country. After 50 unsuccessful dry holes by leading oil explorers, BNE is today the No.1 revenue generator in more »
