DAY ONE - THURSDAY, APRIL 20
Social Media, Crisis Communications for Exploration Companies
The rapid spread of information on social media platforms, the growth of digital content viewership and increasing public interest in the mineral exploration and development industry requires companies better understand how to navigate and take advantage of these tools to succeed today and in the future. With new technology coming on-stream, the 24-hour news cycle is also dramatically changing how quickly companies need to respond when facing a crisis. This session will focus on best practices for utilizing social media and responding in a crisis.
Working Together: Building Social Responsibility and Aboriginal Relationships
This “interactive story-telling” session will immerse participants in the stories and real-life experiences of mineral explorers. We will discuss important social responsibility and Aboriginal themes, such as maintaining the “social chain of custody,” cultural awareness and sensitivity, early engagement and community participation as well as reconciliation in BC.
DAY TWO - FRIDAY, APRIL 21
