Shell and Churchill Club
Shell established an alliance with Churchill Club, an independent, non-profit business and technology forum located in Silicon Valley, California, USA, in 2011. The club organises regular events that allow CEOs, thought leaders, business executives, innovators, academia, and senior politicians from around the world to discuss the latest global developments. The organisation aims to help drive innovation and economic growth to benefit society, with an emphasis on insights leading to action. Our relationship allows us to contribute to the discussion on energy and innovation in the Silicon Valley epicentre of innovation.
Shell again featured prominently as the Innovation Champion Sponsor at the annual Churchill Club awards – “The Churchills” – in September 2015.
The fifth annual event to highlight excellence in innovation, leadership, collaboration, and social benefit for the purpose of inspiring others, honoured winners in four categories.
Elizabeth Holmes, Founder and CEO of Theranos and 2015 winner of the Global Benefactor award
The award winners were: Former Chairman and CEO of Intel, Andy Grove (Legendary Leader), LinkedIn (Game Changer award), Pixar Animation Studios (Magical Team award), and Elizabeth Holmes, Founder and CEO of Theranos (Global Benefactor award).
Each inspiring honoree shared their perspectives and insights about what is needed to innovate, lead, collaborate, and contribute to the greater good.
The four were selected by the Churchill Club Academy – a group of 700 people representing a diversity of the innovation community, from senior executives and professionals, to academics, professors, students, and influential members of the press.
