Resourcing Tomorrow

Rohitesh was appointed CEO of ICMM in April 2021. He is passionate about the transformative power of mining, particularly in emerging markets where he has spent two-thirds of his life. His career has been at the intersection of sustainability, resources and geopolitics and his prior roles have included Managing Director for Energy, Climate & Resources at Eurasia Group and Global Head of Sustainability for the Mining Sector at KPMG.  

Ro is a Fellow and faculty member of the Africa Leadership Initiative, a Raisina fellow at the Asian Forum on Global Governance and a member of the Advisory Board of Concordia. He also serves on the expert panel on climate change for the UK government’s Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions (PACT) programme and has been named one of South Africa’s climate change leaders for his work with the country’s mining industry. He is also Chair of the Board of Trustees of the BecomingX Foundation which strives to create a world in which all young people can realise their full potential.

He holds a Masters of Science in Environmental Change & Management from the University of Oxford in the UK, and a Bachelor of Commerce in Economics from Rhodes University in South Africa.

Next Generation Leaders Forum

Our Next Gen Leader programme in 2022 attracted over 100 students and graduates to the event. We targeted not universities offering mining degrees (Imperial, Camborne, Dundee) but tangential degrees (geology, business, engineering, health and safety) from the likes of Oxford, Bristol, Leicester, East Anglia, Southampton, St. Andrews and Birkbeck College.

Our mission at Resourcing Tomorrow is to show how mining is an inclusive industry which offers opportunities for everyone. What degree or qualifications you have, whatever your background is, there is a place in the mining industry for you.

This session will be followed by a Speed Connect Graduates meets Employers on the Exhibition Floor
