You could hear a pin drop at the recent IPWEAvic Leadership Series Business Luncheon held at Kooyong Tennis Club on 17th August when Matt Gill re told his story of the Beaconsfield mine disaster Anzac Day 2006.  Matt was the mine manager when the disaster unfolded.  His experience in an emergency resonanted with delegates who have been through fire and flood emergency situations and the lessons learnt apply to any such emergency.  Matt suggested that it is important to have an emergency plan and in times of emergency bring it out and follow its steps.  Then:

  • believe in and trust the team
  • have a clear plan
  • write it all down
  • think outside the tunnel
  • respect the individual
  • understand the media
  • keep it in balance

Thankyou Dial Beofre You Dig for sponsorship of the event.  It was especially great to welcome the MWOA Board as our guests to this event.
