Session 29 - Issues in Management (Albion A)


Chairman: C. Twigge-Molecey


These days, with the migration of the mining and metals processing industries out of the first world and globalization a fact of life, metallurgists and material scientists are more and more likely to be asked to work overseas for periods of time.This can vary from an enormously enriching experience to a major disaster depending on a wide range of controllable factors. This session will explore a range of key issues including:

  • The benefit package
  • Overseas tax opportunities
  • Physical risk and health management
  • Language and culture assimilation
  • The spouse and family.

In short, how to ensure it is enriching and professionally productive experience for all involved.
