Would you like to be a speaker or propose a session for NSW Minerals Council Health, Safety, Environment & Community (HSEC) Conference?

February 27, 2015

The new NSW Mining Health, Safety, Community and Environment conference will be held on 31 August - 1 September in the Hunter Valley.
This year we are combining the best of our Health & Safety and Environment & Community conferences to provide even more value for money and the highest quality content possible for those working in mining and related businesses.

Do you have a big idea that you want to share?
We’re working hard on an exciting conference program now, but some of the best ideas for our events come from the passionate people in our industry.
That’s why we’re asking you to tell us your ideas for speakers of content at this year’s NSW Mining HSEC Conference.

This may simply be as an expert speaker who can contribute to a discussion on a wider topic. Or it could be to help curate an entire stream session with a vision for topic, speakers and format.
It’s not about selling a product or service. It sounds obvious, but it helps a lot if you have a thought-provoking point of view – and want to get it across.
The key question we want you to ask yourself is what will the audience get out of your presentation? It could be a useful piece of knowledge that will help them do their job better. It could be some new insight that helps them understand where the industry is going. Or it could be an inspirational story to motivate them to work harder.
So, tell us if you’re working on a project that you think people from our industry would want to hear about and can learn from your findings. Are you conducting some interesting research that your industry peers would be interested in? Or do you have a great mining case study?
The key thing is being able to communicate what you’ve learned.
We need the following:
  • Your name, company and title
  • The name of your company and title of your speaker/s
  • A short summary of your idea / presentation / topic (250 words max)
  • Examples of where the speaker has delivered presentations in the past
Submitting an expression of interest doesn’t guarantee you will be included in the final line up. But we can guarantee that we don’t have a monopoly on good ideas and we can’t wait to hear yours. 
We will give preference to expressions of interest concerning topics that are relevant to the wider industry, but if you are specialising in one particular area we would still love to hear from you.
If you have any questions about this please email Amber Beesley from the NSW Minerals Council abeesley@nswmining.com.au
