An Overview of APGO’s 12th AGM & Conference Sessions

All sessions being held on June 12, 2014 at One King West, Toronto

How to Deliver Superior Presentations… Because Inferior Never Wins! by George Torok
9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. - Grand Banking Hall

Board meetings, conferences, networking events, poster sessions, team meetings and job interviews (to name just a few) require the challenging skill of being a good presenter. While APGO recognizes the value of technical sessions, one can not underestimate the power of superior presentations. That’s why APGO is bringing in George Torok, a speech coach for executives to give our members a great learning opportunity that can meaningfully enhance their professional development and presentation skills.


NI 43-101 - Disclosure Pitfalls and Practical Guidance by OSC’s Representatives, Craig Waldie, P.Geo and Jim Whyte, P.Geo.
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. - King Gallery

Always timely, particularly after the June 2013 Report on Staff's Review of Technical Reports by Mining Issuers released by the Ontario Securities Commission highlighting concerns about non-compliance issues in technical disclosure. Learn directly from the regulator. This session will include a practical exercise. APGO had the opportunity to offer this session in Thunder Bay to a well received audience so we decided to bring it back to the AGM and Conference.


Natural Disasters and Geology by Dr. Stephen Evans
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. - Grand Banking Hall

One of the leading experts in natural hazards and disasters in North America, we first heard Dr. Stephen Evan’s compelling lecture about Natural Disasters and Geology at the University of Waterloo during APGO’s South West Regional Networking event. While Dr. Evan’s talk will outline five perspectives on linkages between geology and natural disasters, it goes further to highlight the “contribution of geoscience knowledge in mitigating disaster losses.” You don’t want to miss this session!
