On behalf of the organising committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in The AusIMM New Leaders' Conference 2016. This conference will be held in Brisbane, Queensland, on 19-20 September with the topical theme: 'Creating our future: the new generation of innovation'.
As young graduates, it is important to be equipped with the ability to overcome the difficulties of working in a cyclic environment, solve technical problems and meet the challenges of community perception and social licences to operate. The conference program will focus on new developments in the minerals industry, the business of mining, the need for interdisciplinary interaction and rising to the industry challenges that this generation is facing.
You will hear from inspirational leaders in the minerals industry covering a range of disciplines including geology, mining, metallurgy and environmental management. All presentations aim to equip you with the essential knowledge and drive required to take steps towards becoming a successful and innovative leader in the minerals industry.
Included in the two day conference will be workshop sessions catered specially to your career stage, networking opportunities and industry tours.
