Beer on tap for Thought Leadership Series


METS Ignited chief executive officer Adrian Beer will feature as a panellist for the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy’s Thought Leadership Series which will hold high-level discussions on the future of mining.

The AusIMM has partnered with METS Ignited in a joint effort to improve the productivity and competitiveness of the mining equipment, technology and services sector.

AusIMM and METS Ignited will work together to stimulate innovation, carrying out a shared vision of industry growth the two hope will set a standard for originality and creation.

According to AusIMM chief executive officer Stephen Durkin, uniting Australia’s peak body for professionals in the mining industry with mining’s dedicated growth centre is a natural fit.

“With over three hundred thousand people directly employed by the METS sector in Australia alone, this workforce is at the forefront of Australia’s contribution to the global mining industry,” Durkin said.

“This partnership ensures that AusIMM can support the careers of professionals working in the METS sector, providing them with the leadership and development necessary to sustain a booming national industry.”

METS Ignited chief executive officer Adrian Beer echoed Durkin’s sentiments, and is excited by the prospects ahead, highlighting AusIMM’s Thought Leadership Series as a prominent case study.

“METS Ignited welcomes the formal partnership between our industry growth centre and AusIMM to deliver greater collaborative opportunities between the resources sector and Australia’s leading tech innovators from the METS sector,” Beer said.

“The AusIMM Thought Leadership Series provides a significant platform to promote the technology and innovation coming out of the sector that addresses our future industry needs, such as low emissions technology, social and environmental responsibility, the future skills for our resources workforce, and capitalising upon the emerging critical minerals demand.”

Taking place across four sessions in August and September, AusIMM’s Thought Leadership Series will feature expert insights from the likes of  Beer, PwC Australia national mining leader Debbie Smith and Metallurgical Systems founder and managing director John Vagenas.
