How can a basic human trait like curiosity help us tackle challenges, like climate change, skills shortage, diversity, automation and more? Today, we gather together the new tools and resources we’ve discovered and integrate them into a foundational plan that can move the mining industry toward becoming a catalyst for prosperity.
Doris is a Chemical Engineer with a PhD in Metallurgy from the Université de Liege, Belgium with broad senior level experience in both technical organizations & developing new business globally in the mining/metals, energy and infrastructure sectors. Achieved objectives by successfully building multidiscipline teams across not only the company but also other companies.
She is currently Senior Advisor to Hatch. She ran Hatch Peru until 2012 and Hatch Europe until 2017, and over 15 years created new and innovative opportunities that expanded the business in new regions (Australia, South America, Europe & North America) by understanding customer needs, anticipating future needs and creating new services to meet them.
