“Thank you very much for that great presentation. I think that it went really well – I would never have thought that it was your first online short course! Everything went smoothly, video was high quality and audio was very good. The material itself was very informative and I appreciated the coverage of industry application and good practical examples from Alan’s experience. I look forward to the next session.” Nicole Jansen van Rensburg, Principal Advisor – Hydrometallurgy Studies - Process Optimization, Growth & Innovation, Rio Tinto (Australia)
