Project Management at the End of the World
Project management always has its challenges, but have you thought about what it is like to manage a remote project where there is no infrastructure, your office is a tent, and on your first day of work the temperature is -20° C? Mineral exploration programs are often in far-flung places and have very unique opportunities and challenges. Chadwick Spencer was the camp manager for such a project in northern Ontario and he would like to share his experiences with you. Come hear what it is like to scale a project from 10 to 80 people, where the nearest town is a two-hour flight or a four-hour drive across ice roads, while working to create a gold mine.
Location: Napa Sonoma Plumgate - 550 W Plumb Ln, Reno, NV 89509
