Natural resource businesses mean high wages and high productivity. At our Naturally Resourceful conference, we heard why this is a winning advantage.
Keynote speaker CJ Ritchie (pictured) of the British Columbia government spoke at the Nov. 29 Resource Works "Naturally Resourceful" event about the fact that mining/oil&gas, technology and forestry produce the highest average weekly earnings. This fact was contained in a broad-ranging presentation about the connections between resources and technology in BC today.
Ritchie is the Assistant Deputy Minister of the Economic Development Division of the Ministry of Jobs Trade and Technology.
We also heard from an expert panel (below) of cutting-edge thinkers supporting the fields of mining, energy and forestry. That's Stewart Muir of Resource Works at far left with Dr. Pascal Spothelfer, President and Chief Executive Officer, Genome BC, Joy Romero, VP of Technology & Innovation at Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., and Professor Gregory Dipple, Bradshaw Research Initiative for Minerals and Mining at UBC.
