Key topics include:

  • Analyze, Adapt and Overcome: How miners can build and integrate an effective digital strategy into their operations when parts of a mining organization are so different?: How do you a) take that strategy and operationalize it? And b) what does that look like on the ground?


  • Mining stakeholders keep talking about Social Licence to Operate, but when will action become the focus?: How is social risk treated differently to other significant risks owned by mining companies and why? and where have companies turned insight into positive action and seen demonstrable improvements in relationships with communities?


  • Our responsibility to the planet: improving our environmental sustainability: Where are the environmental pressure points for stakeholders? Is their concern justified?

and what new strategies need to be implemented to ensure that we are operating more sustainably moving forward?


  • Your future Workforce: Millennials aren’t the Problem, they’re the solution: How real is the risk of falling short in the quest for new industry talent and does this present an opportunity for mining to rebrand as an industry?


  • Equality in innovation: is innovation unaffordable outside of majors, are these smaller mining companies being priced out of being able to compete and how do we ensure that all mining companies are not intimidated by the prospect of innovation?
