We had the great pleasure of assisting Anglo American host their Professionals in Training (PIT) Symposium this year, which was a great success.
Anglo American is a global mining company with a portfolio that spans diamonds, platinum, copper, iron ore, and more. The PIT symposium is a highlight in Anglo American’s graduate programme, which is open to top-performing learners with an interest in disciplines relevant to the mining industry such Mining, Engineering, Process, Geosciences and Finance.
This event for Kumba Iron Ore (a South African mining supplier to AA) aims to shine a light on its youngest and brightest talent. Each PIT student has the opportunity to present their unique pitches in this dedicated symposium environment. The event aims to give the PIT students’ exposure to the most senior people within the company, while giving some of their longer serving employees a view of the newest and freshest ideas generated. One lucky student, whose pitch outshone the rest, won a grand prize: an overseas trip to continue their studies!
