Mipac Senior Systems Engineer Tim Hausler will give a paper at Metplant 2013 about achieving success in large-scale, remote-area metallurgical plant projects.
The winner of the 2012 AusIMM New Professional Award, Tim will share his experiences of working overseas, specifically in Kazakhstan.
“My paper will identify ways that engineers can improve their experiences while working abroad including how to develop solutions to engineering challenges when collaborating with people from a variety of cultural and language backgrounds.
“I’ll also address how to work effectively with translators, ways to cope with being away from home for extended periods and how to maintain contact with work colleagues at head office.”
Metplant 2013 will be held from 15 to 17 July in Perth, Western Australia.
