West End Briefing: The lifecycle of a mining board

Event Date: 
06 June 2013
Frasers Function Centre

Directors on Boards of mining and oil and gas exploration companies bring extensive experience and  knowledge from their executive careers.  But as companies transition through different stages of growth, Boards must have complementary skills  around the table during the full  lifecycle.

The insight from Directors with engineering and project delivery experience is valuable mid-cycle, but once delivered, can they guide the CEO through production and marketing challenges?   Are the original deal makers and funding gurus relevant  once the company has a project and is moving  from an explorer to a producer?

How can succession planning of Boards ensure that there are the best people around the table at the right point of the lifecycle to achieve the best outcomes?

A highly experienced panel of Directors from the resources industry will discuss this particular unique challenge to the Boards of mining and oil and gas exploration companies.
