RESEARCH EXHIBITION: The Geopolitics of Deep Sea Mining in Papua New Guinea at Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK

November 30, 2018 from 6pm to 8pm
Mining is going into the abyss. Driven by a desire to meet an ever increasing global demand for both conventional and unconventional metals, humanity is going further, deeper and to more extreme places than ever before.

About My Work
I am a specialist consultant and trainer who works with governments, businesses, NGOs and individuals. Having formulated Jones'Octagon of Success (JOOS) I endeavour to ensure a wider understanding of the dynamics of genuine and purposeful engagement. I believe that sadly for too long the narrative of leadership and management has been dominated by a fixation with the corridors of power, whilst a more balanced approach would include a consideration of the corridors of responsibility. Mine approach is one of being constructive and solutions orientated.
Areas of interest
gold, diamonds, oil and natural gas, csr, governance and anti-corruption, investing, geology, environment, social accountability, human rights, contract and licensing, monitoring revenue collection, redistribution and sustainable development
Intererested in job/consulting opportunities

The average citizen barely gives a thought to the various materials that are so much a part of everyday, but when it comes to the activities of the Extractives Industry one soon discovers that people often have a jaundiced view. To those in management and leadership roles this elucidates much of the daily challenge that they face; on…

Canadian mining companies have proved to be remarkably adept at identifying new markets in some of the lesser known parts of the world.  From Eritrea in the Horn of Africa to Romania in Central Europe Canada’s uncanny ability to spot opportunities and to carry out the required surveys and raise the appropriate finance is something that puts the North American country firmly in the vanguard of countries that have successful Extractives Industries. The degree of…

As governments regardless of their political outlook have a duty to support and nurture economic development. Wealth and job creation are essential to the stability of any society, especially those that have a limited capacity to provide social welfare for the young, the sick, the elderly and those who have fallen on hard times. One of the greatest challenges in the developing countries is that…
