Centennial’s stakeholder engagement and social impact in-house expert, headed across the ditch to New Zealand to headline a seminar on the importance of engaging effectively with stakeholders.
Group Manager Stakeholder Engagement James Marshall was invited to head up the seminar by Bathurst Resources, a New Zealand based operation with mining facilities in Southland, Canterbury, Waikato and the West Coast.
James said Bathurst Resources are keen to make sure staff have access to industry best practice techniques and asked Centennial to share their experiences and knowledge.
“It reinforced the need to understand the concept of social license by exploring the risks to business if stakeholder engagement was not undertaken correctly.”
“The visit to Bathurst Resources was a really positive experience.
Sharing industry expertise and knowledge in the engineering and operations side of mining is commonplace, so it is great to see knowledge sharing expanding into other areas of the business as well.”
The seminar included sessions on stakeholder engagement, working with community and social impact assessment.
