Guest Speaker: Chris Baker
Our guest speaker on October 21, Chris Baker, will explore the sensitive topic of mining and how technology and rising export values present new opportunities for brave businesses. He’ll comment on the issues related to markets, mining in NZ and globally, the rise of gold as a strategic store of value in a risk-on world, coal’s place in the production mix, climate change and protests.
Chris Baker is the CEO of Wellington- based Straterra, the collective voice for the NZ minerals and mining sector, from small firms to large enterprises and seeks increased investment and growth in minerals exploration and mining in New Zealand. “Properly encouraged and managed, we believe the NZ minerals sector could treble in output and on-the-ground investment over coming years.” Chris holds a BSc (Hons) in Mineral Technology (1976), and an MBA (1994) from the University of Otago.
