As a seasoned international mining professional, Henry talks about how he managed to leave Africa and seek his career elsewhere around the world. He also discusses mining in Ghana and what we can learn from his experiences. He has also recently released a new book titled “Navigating Career Challenges in the International Mining Industry; the Journey of a Mining Engineer”.
