"Mark presented the keynote address at our 2022 User Conference and it was a huge success. He delivered an engaging presentation on a highly relevant topic for our market, which all of our attendees and staff found incredibly interesting. He is a confident and knowledgeable professional speaker, and I believe this was truly reflected by the number of questions and discussions he had with our attendees after his presentation. Mark was a pleasure to work with on this conference and we would highly recommend him as a public speaker! "

This webinar eventuated from a survey Mark conducted based on his book Crimes Against Mine Planning, which showed that optimistic mine planning was polled as the number 1 occurring crime. The webinar discusses the causes of optimistic mine plans and possible solutions.
What to do about it
I held a question an answer session on my book Crimes Against Mine Planning that was based solely on questions from the attendees, no prepared webinar or presentation from myself.
The book covers the problems with deterministic mine planning, schedule slippage, mine planning KPIs, optimistic plan inputs, how to implement the plan, and frustration from other teams about the reliability of the mine plan, to name a few.
