In this episode we chat to Jon Wylie, President of Global Natural Resources for Proudfoot Consulting, a global operational consulting group in the Natural Resources Industry sector focussing on productivity improvement through effective employee engagement, active supervisory skills, and the implementation of real-time, fact-based management behaviours

We talk about how well the mining companies and industries will adapt to this new environment after COVID-19, and how they are preparing for the new normal. We discuss what the new normal may look like, and the future of mining in great depth.


  • When you’re a region-based company, you miss out on many global opportunities. Proudfoot circumvented this by creating a global model.
  • The best practice for consultancies are to be split into two groups: technical and general consultants. This is the general framework most companies are built upon.
  • To be an effective consultant, you need to change people’s opinions, and you can only do this truly effectively by influencing.
  • A post-COVID world will require much consideration. The employment and economic landscapes are now completely different. In the long term, mining will always have a future. The question is how long it will take to become fully-functional again.


‘Proudfoot’s uniqueness lies in the way it deploys its solutions’

‘You’re creating change by creating alignment’

’We’re going to see greater integration with local communities’

‘In order to work as active stakeholder, we’re going to have to share the decision-making’
