Tell us about your role at Brunswick and your inspiration for establishing the Mining Indaba Young Leaders Programme.


I have been a Partner at Brunswick for over a decade now, co-heading our Energy and Resources practice. Although I am based in London, our clients have assets, management and listings all over the world so our team reflects that and we work together around the globe; and of course, we travel a lot!
Mining became a passion for me after I spent many months as a young graduate trainee on a gold mine in Kalgoorlie. The combination of the science, the people, the outdoors, and infectious optimism that every miner seems to have, became the endorphin I needed to pursue a career in mining. I am now a strategic adviser to mining clients on all things related to communication, whether that be communicating to investors, employees, communities, or governments, on a vast array of subjects that are critical to the business.
It was the mentors that I had along my career that inspired me, so the Young Leaders Programme was established to inspire the next generation to think about mining as a career and to engage the industry players in that conversation.
