"I’ve attended Mirel’s workshop and whilst I had my reservations prior to the seminar, I was very pleased with both the content and the presentation manner. Mirel’s point of emphasising the importance of proper logistics assessments at the early stages of the mining projects resonates with my own approach based on my experience in supply chain management and logistics. The interactive costing exercise was unquestionably most practical, the optimisation tools presented were effective and the negotiation game was insightful and entertaining. Overall, the workshop was a clearly positive experience I would recommended to mining industry logistics and supply chain professionals as well as to study managers, logistics service providers, engineering consultants and academics like myself."

"I found Mirel's workshop an excellent opportunity to obtain a concise professional overview of the mining logistics world today.
I highly recommend his workshop to all prospective and operational mining professionals."
