PD Hours
Join the Far North Queensland Branch for our special presentation / August Technical Talk from Past President Janine Herzig “How a Multi-disciplinary Approach Creates Value in the Resources Sector.”

About this event

Janine will briefly discuss her career as a mineral processing engineer, how she has embraced the development of additional skillsets in areas such as tailings management, ESG and social performance and why she believes a truly multi-disciplinary approach in the resources sector creates value for all stakeholders.

This short talk will be immediately followed by Q&A and interaction. This is a good opportunity for members to interact in a casual setting with their Immediate Past President and with top class food and wine.
