Leadership Lessons from the Mining Industry

David Garofalo, Chairman & CEO of the Marshall Precious Metals Fund and Chairman of the Board, Great Panther Mining Limited

In this instalment of our new online speaker series, David will chat with SEEC Executive Director Alan Middleton online to share insights of leadership during the pandemic .

Canada is a global leader in the mining sector. How has COVID 19 impacted the industry and its operations? What steps are mining companies taking to deal with the challenges caused by the pandemic to ensure safety both below and above ground? David will share his insights as a mining executive for 30 years and discuss how mining companies are transforming their global operations and business due to the disruption.

We live in a new world. Each day we are faced with uncertainty and disruption. With these new business challenges come new opportunities for your organization to transform and succeed.

What lessons can we learn from this new reality? How can we be resilient and improve as an individual, team and organization during a crisis?

These and other important questions will be explored during a series of virtual fireside chats: Leadership Lessons in Troubled Times. These free, 30-minute online events will feature thought leaders and influencers from top organizations in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

The speakers will share their insights on leadership lessons learned and how they might apply to your business or organization:

  • What are the most important leadership traits for a company or organization during disruption?
  • How do you build up resilience in different functions across your team and organization?
  • What strategies are needed to communicate new ideas and shift mindsets (social distancing, telework, managing remote teams, innovation)?
  • How do you overcome resistance to change on an individual, team and organizational level?
  • How do we improve collaboration and stakeholder management during a crisis?
