The rise of corporate social responsibility with Steve Adamthwaite
“The idea of a moonshot is to never actually be profitable. it’s to have a huge lofty goal and solve it… and that’s sort of it!”
“Sometimes they do actually work out to be profitable, and some of them work out to just be game-changes“
An engineering item for discussion…
“mine are very niche based in minerals processing”
“a love in my heart for gravity gold recovery” – essentially a washing machine which allows the gold to be separated from a process before it can get milled/ground down into dust.
Dom points out that
“it’s always the simple things that are the best”
Profession Graeme Jameson invented the flotation cell which is something he admires.
Steve is also a fan of Incline planes created by Prof Kevin Galvin, such as the Reflux Classifier
An engineer to admire… Joe Townsend who is involved in the Newcastle Division of Engineers Australia.
Joe Seppelt was a mentor Steve greatly admired from his time at Newcrest. He is still referring to the advice Joe gave him. “Just some of his philosophies are amazing”
Sandy Gray from Gekko “amazing in terms of his problem solving and ideas”
