Apr 2: Deadline to register for CIM workshops

The Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) 2014 Convention runs from May 11 – 14 in Vancouver.

The half-day workshop “A Global Mindset” will be held on May 11, 1 – 4:30 pm.  It will provide a basic introduction to global competency skills and communication strategies to effectively engage in cross-cultural interactions.

The geography of knowledge has shifted.  Technological superiority is no longer a geographic privilege.  The information and knowledge play field has been leveled by new communication tools.  The newest technology and innovation may come from anywhere.
The potential for global collaboration is exponential; however, how do we manage the misunderstandings of multiple languages and cultures?

The facilitator, Mafalda Arias, has over nineteen years’ experience working in various capacities in private and public companies in the mineral exploration and mining industries in Canada and South America.

Workshops will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please register before April 2, 2014. Registration fee is $69 for conference participants and $150 for non-conference participants.
