Mark Norwell, CEO, Perenti Group
I want to extend my deepest thanks to Bill and Sarah for your amazing support. We would not have ventured forth to the Mining Indaba Conference in South Africa this year without the AAMEG association and guidance, which was truly the fundamental reason for our successful time in Cape Town. We look forward to a successful association in years to come.
Grant Strudwick, Vice President, AMEA
We greatly appreciate the effort AAMEG puts into knowing our organisation & representing Australian mining companies' best interests. Being an AAMEG member is a mark of quality and commitment to continually improving our network & non-technical resources on the ground. AAMEG is doing a great job at ensuring Australian companies have the network and advisory they need to stay on top of regional issues that can affect operations. We see AAMEG as an approachable, dedicated team who are proactively looking for ways to lift the standard and increase dialogue for Australian companies operating in Africa.
