Young Professionals 2015
"Making your own way in the minerals industry"

21-22 October 2015 · Mintek, Randburg, Johannesburg

After the successful hosting of the 2014 Young Professionals conference the 2015 conference will continue to challenge the norm by considering the obstacles the young professional encounters between graduating from university and making an impact in the mining industry. These have to be overcome in an industry facing both economic and social challenges.

The conference will offer each delegate exposure to topics such as leadership, career development and work-life balance.
