Congratulations on the success of the 2015 CIO Mining Summit. The Panel keynotes and format of the round table discussions allowed for interesting, rewarding and interactive debates.


I am confident that all the delegates can confidently say that they found the summit to be of value.

“What an awesome event!  Fresh, Relevant, Invaluable, Insightful, Open, Collaborative and superbly organized!

Tough economic – and market conditions in the global Mining Industry necessitate that we become more resilient.  More value is expected from implemented information technology solutions.


Businesses are asking the right questions regarding adding value to information solution investments.


The CIO Mining Africa Summit is TRULY the only dedicated CIO event specifically targeted for the African Mining Industry.  These highly successful Summits create an ongoing platform for Mining CIO’s to brainstorm, collaborate and debate not only on overcoming continual industry challenges, but also create sustainable solutions to create value in our organisations by transforming the wealth of information at our exposure to intelligent wisdom.  


I can truly recommend all Mining CIO’s to attend the next CIO Mining Africa Summit as this is a MUST in my Diary!”

"The CIO Mining Africa event was a tremendous success for me. The content was relevant and focused on the topics that matter to the Mining Industry and the discussions were insightful with good participation and input from the floor.


I truly hope to see the cooperation between the companies deepen with regard to tackling pressing issues like rural connectivity and mining specific IM solutions."

This event responded well to what the African mining industry has needed for a long time, namely how to leverage information to help industry develop in the next decade, with a focus on being fit-for-purpose and leading global practice. As a Managing Director of an African-focused mining group, the lessons learned would now be applied in a number of African countries we have operations and projects in.


I encourage other progressive CEOs to join in future events, to assist in defining and prioritizing business needs for CIOs to take on board. Thanks to EnerGlobe for addressing this long outstanding need and bringing likeminded leaders together, when the industry has needed it most!

"Another successful CIO Mining Africa Summit comes to an end. The bar has been raised once again by all.


Lots of meaningful interaction and passionate individuals participating on the critical ICT topics that were discussed.


I am again surprised by the willingness and knowledge sharing that took place throughout the two days.


I confirm that several of the sessions and networking discussion provide me with valuable insights which can help in unlocking value within my organization and potential improve the mining industry as a whole.


Thanks to all the speakers, facilitators and delegates for making this meaningful and successful event.  It is one of the most useful and enlightening events that I have attended and look forward to the next summit."

"Thank you for the opportunity you provided… I can most certainly see the benefit this would have to all of us as we continue to engage in these forums and summits.


I was a little hesitant but once I presented my discussion.. I was actually astonished by the compliments I received… I took a whole new spin on things as a young, dymanic IT Leader… suddenly everyone related to the challenges we faced… I believe my point was on key.


I look forward to future events, and perhaps would like more opportunities to host discussions at the same time, I truly hope that everyone sees the benefits and we continue to grow these forums, and down the line, creates a powerful voice for us to take our concerns and issues and use it as a massive steering committee for the industry.


Well done!"



"The event is attended by people who are right in the sweet spot where we want to deliver our key messages, and because it's small and intimate the opportunity for debate and discussion provides valuable feedback for us into our product development process. This is about raising the game for an entire industry, not your usual day-out-of-the-office seminar."

"The 2015 CIO Mining Africa Summit was truly fantastic, to have the best in industry getting together to discuss the industry and the hindrances it faces is brilliant to see. When you have the sharing of expertise as experienced during the two days, each individual leaves with move value to add to their specific company.


Well done to the EnerGlobe team on an excellent event with great content and discussion points.


Looking forward to the next one!"



“This is not your usual PowerPoint presentation sales pitch kind of summit. Real issues affecting Mines and most especially solutions for today & tomorrow are discussed.


A MUST attend, for the CIO who wants to be on top of their game.”



"EnerGlobe's CIO Mining Africa Summit brings together key stakeholders from the Sub Saharan mining industry.


Having attended two of CIO Mining Africa events, it’s evident that the mining industry truly value EnerGlobe's understanding of the industry and their ability to consistently deliver an agenda for CIO’s to openly share market challenges and discuss current and future trends."



"Enjoyed the two days - thanks!


Will look to book a Sponsor slot for next year."
