Our topic for the November networking luncheon is:
“A man’s world? Risk management tales from the frontlines of mining in Latin America.”
: Daniel Linsker, Control Risks, Vice President, Global Client Services, Americas
Daniel Linsker currently serves as a Vice President for Control Risks’ Global Client Services department in South America and also heads the Americas region mining consulting practice. Based out of Control Risks’ Bogotá office, Daniel is responsible for the development, management and delivery of sophisticated comprehensive risk management projects for Control Risks’ clients. He specializes in developing, leading and implementing tailored and integral solutions for clients to manage complex issues across the Americas, with a special emphasis on risk management for large projects in mining/extractives and infrastructure, and those that require in-depth regional expertise of South America.
Above-ground risk management is becoming ever more relevant to the successful development of mining projects across the world, and especially in complex jurisdictions like Africa and Latin America. And, even as political, social and security risks have become more important for mining projects, most companies have not adapted or changed quick enough the way the approach these risks and how they are managed internally. Join us as Daniel explores some of the new risk challenges mining companies are facing in Latin America and how to quickly adapt to this new reality, to ensure that you have the right tools to be successful. Using case studies from different projects, Daniel will explore some of the main political, social and security risks that mining companies now face in the different mining corners of the region, and he will discuss what worked and what did not work to address the issues and challenges that these caused.
