Date: Monday 28 October 2019
Time: 9:00am – 5:30pm
Location: Melbourne Convention Centre
Centred around hands-on case studies using practical experiences, this one day Social License to Operate Workshop will address the critical challenge of earning the right to have a presence of place within a community, faced by both the mining industry and other related industries.
This is a core issue. Gaining regulatory approval for mining projects and developing them is a challenging, time and money intensive process. Without a social license to operate, these investments can be rendered worthless.
This workshop will explore strategies for improving relations between miners and the communities in which they operate.
- Hear practical case examples of successful community engagement from the coal face – direct from operating miners and the communities in which they operate
- Develop successful strategies for community engagement, in terms of both strategy but also engagement methods
- Understand how to work in a two way collaborative manner with the communities in which you operate
- Learn how to work practically in your community towards combating the demonization of the mining industry – “the bush telegraph spreading bad news”
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THE SOCIAL LICENSE TO OPERATE WORKSHOP?
- Senior Strategic Executives and Community Managers from Mining Companies seeking to improve their community relations
- Communications Managers
- Corporate Affairs Managers
- Permits Managers
- Land Access Managers
- Social Responsibility Managers
- Environment Managers
