Guest Speaker – Professor Geoffrey Blainey AC, Tuesday 28 August 2018, Brisbane
To celebrate the AusIMM’s 125 year anniversary, the AusIMM Metallurgical Society G D Delprat Lecture will be delivered by preeminent historian Professor Geoffrey Blainey.
Geoffrey Blainey is one of Australia’s most significant historians. His impeccably researched presentations delivered with humour, reveal breathtaking insight. His vast knowledge and historical understanding reinforce his growing reputation as a futurist in both the economic and business milieu and on social and political trends.
Professor Blainey’s lecture will be a historically-themed commentary of the Australian mining industry, with a highlight being his memories of personally meeting with G D Delprat and other mining luminaries in the 1950s.
This year’s lecture will only be presented in Brisbane. For those unable to be in Brisbane there is an option of live streaming to your phone, tablet or computer and the recording will be available afterwards.
