In this episode we chat to Lisa Ali, Chief People Officer at AngloGold Ashanti who are an independent, global gold mining company with a diverse, high-quality portfolio of operations, projects and exploration activities across nine countries on four continents.
Lisa has over 30 years experience in the extractive industries in mining and oil & gas working for the likes of BP and Newcrest in an executive HR capacity. Lisa discusses the skills short in our industry, something I also echo and is going to dig deeper into this subject and hopefully provide some ideas and solutions as to how we can improve this within our industry.
Lisa is going to be attending Europe’s largest mining event, Resourcing Tomorrow, (Formerly known as Mines and Money London,) which is taking place in London on the 28-30 November, a great platform for the entire mining value chain, fostering learning, lively debates, and providing valuable networking opportunities.
