Testimonials

Here are a few testimonials from our listeners

I just wanted to thank you for the efforts you put into "the mining podcast". I have gone from listening to you and your guests speak whilst studying for my final exams to living in Perth looking for an opportunity to apply my knowledge. I simply wouldn't have had access to the insights I have gained from listening to your episodes and can't confidently say I would be here without it.  Appreciate your efforts.                            Aiden Loadsby

I have been listening to the Dig Deep Podcast for a few months and have really enjoyed it. Thank you for all the interesting conversations and advice.                                                                                                                                                                                                               Joseph Bartolacci

I loved your podcast with John Scurvhi (No40). I have listened it 3 times!                                                                                                         Narina Shorland

Really enjoyed listening to this episode. The insights shared by James AH Campbell was interesting and informative. Rob Tyson enjoy your podcasts the calibre of your guests is in a league of its own.
Gregory Jordaan

Please keep the Podcast going even though it might be slow initially. This is an excellent learning forum.  For example, Nick Clarke's for me was very informative as he spoke directly into an area that had always been a mystery to me - the transition from technical to corporate management.
Filimone Raibosa

Regarding the podcast, I really enjoy it as it is different and more ‘personal discussions’ interviews. I have learnt about many companies/people I was not aware before and their way of running the business.
Jasmina Stanimirovic

Your podcast sounds very professional Rob. Well done!
Mike Woodbury

I was contacted via LinkedIn twice, one from a job/advice seeker and the other was an executive with the coal industry in Indonesia saying he liked what I had to say and that we must have been in the same place at the same time at least once. I did get several comments from the guys who work for me and they all seemed to like it very much. Not a lot more than that I'm afraid. I think it is a good platform for those of us in mining and I encourage you to keep it going.
Rodney Lacy

 

Some positive feedback from old colleagues, Canada and SA. No business, but have seen increased traffic on my Linkedin profile.
Andy Carter

The only feedback I had was from a couple of mates who said it came across well.
Pat Forward

I've heard from a number of people who have listened to your podcast and have been quite complimentary about what you're doing.  Don't ask me who but all I can say is that the subject does keep coming up in general conversations both here and abroad.  So you're reaching out quite away!  General comment is something like, "I heard you in a podcast about your career.........." - I then tell them about you and do a bit of PR on your behalf!
Dennis Thomas

Hi mate, just wanted to let you know that am liking your podcast. I think it's great.
John Austin

The podcasts are very informative – keep up the good work
Tim Vaughan

Your podcasts are a great way to be updated on trends and forecast of the industry.
The design of the conversation format is very well and clearly defined with an always captivating flow. I listened to the one with Jeremy Wrathall on finance, the analysis of mining risks with Andrew Swart. The other that I really liked was your dialogue with a common friend Keith Barron who has been working heavily in Ecuador. I am starting being a fan of your podcasts. Keep going with the initiative.
Cornelio Delgado

I’m getting some positive feedback from people that heard it.
Rocky Smith

The podcasts are excellent and very educational
Puis Kopeap

I think the podcast is a great way to influence and spread valuable information more especially academically as we are constantly moving to a digital world and improved technology
Mishack Chemese

I spent some time listening to your podcast over the weekend. It's great! I'm a bit of a podcast fan. I like the model and your approach
Brett McGuire

Admirer and avid listener of the podcast here. Good luck with future episodes and the growth of the podcast because the content is extremely informative and an excellent way for young mining professionals to acquire additional knowledge to engage within the mining sector. Thank you
Jake Williams

The podcast is a brilliant idea. Not much publicity is given to the mining industry and this programme is going to address this. Keep on the good work.
Albert Nyembia

So this week I have given your podcast a listen and you have saved my 1.5 hour drive each way to work. I am so passionate about the mining industry but find it hard to read about it due to my busy schedule! Everything you have covered so far has been music to my ears - I can’t thank you enough for that. I would love to hear companies discuss Behavioural Safety and Safety Culture as it’s a fundamental part of any business in our industry. Keep up the good work
Lewis Jenkins

I am so glad you introduced me to your podcast channel. I love how you are able to secure senior and experienced individuals who are open to, not only sharing information about their organisations and projects but also valuable nuggets of wisdom for fellow Mining Engineers! Of particular interest to me, our thoughts on how they developed their careers as well as their perspectives on how socio-political circumstances influences mining operations globally
Adriaan Strydomas

I just wanted to message and say I have a discovered your podcast the past week, and I am a big fan! As an exploration-based in Europe I sometimes feel a bit cut off from major mining news, and your podcast is such a superb way of keeping up to date. Exploration geos on this side of the world are more academically inclined, bit frustrating really! It's great to listen to real industry experts for a change. Some really interesting topics brought to light and I appreciate you sharing with the public.  Have a great day
Kayleigh Jane Barrow

I went through the podcast on Spotify and it's amazing and I like the fact that you cover a wide range of topics. It will also be great to have one where you cover the skills and capabilities that young graduates need going into the work environment
Atang Maqelepo

My view on the podcast is that they are important because they can help current mineral explorers do better in the future. A mining company like yours can download such mining podcast audio files which may contain interviews or discussions on the challenges faced by the past mining experts and this can help them do better in the future. I personally can also use the mining podcast to learn several contents of mining. So podcasts can be vital enough
Derick Okumu

I do enjoy your podcasts and try to catch them when available. I find them very insightful, made me think about a few things that never occurred to me before
Arend Brink

Good morning Rob, I think the podcast is awesome. Very informative and enjoyable to listen to
Dan Vander Meer

Hi Rob, My first time listening to your podcast, I think you definitely got something going here, I am not a big talker but listening to the first podcast let me think you know what you are doing, very good to start knowing people who you interview and that we know to relax with you in an interview. It is really good to know that there is a recruiter that goes out of his way and know what is going on in the mining industry. Thank you Rob, will definitely listen to the rest of the podcasts
Andries

I have been listening to the podcast, and I think it's great because it gives or provides clear information, keep up the good job
Ammire Goaseb

Some excellent and insightful information Rob. I've seen a couple now, hence why I reached out to you
Joel Ward

I thought it is a very good initiative having the video to communicate with candidates. It is a pretty daunting position being out of work and the video portrays your personality and character that made me feel like you were interested in helping candidates secure work. This is important when many recruiting agents treat candidates as livestock. Well done
Joe Ranford

It was very nice and informative! Well done – Tiszelle Hauptfieisch

By the way, I loved your podcast with John Scurvhi (No40). I have listened to it 3 times! Which is very much unlike me – Narina Shorland

I have seen your LinkedIn posts frequently and knew you are running a podcast. I had not listened to them before your email mainly because I am a heavy user of podcasts and audiobooks and my reading/listening list was very long. Before responding to you, I listened to two episodes, Responsible Cobalt Mining in the DRC and the one where John Clarke explained his career and thoughts about working in the mining industry (and agriculture). It was actually an interesting coincidence that he mentioned similar kinds of motivations for working for junior and mid-tier players. I am going to continue listening to your episodes - I like that they are very specifically mining oriented rather than discussing generics. I drive a lot (or too much) and these episodes are perfect for early Monday mornings when driving back to site. I will spread the word as well. There are a couple of podcast junkies at the site in addition to myself – Antti Sjoblom
