Hello, I’m James and I’m a second-year geologist. This year, I have been on the DLB committee as a Symposium Officer so I have a good understanding of how the club operates and what the roles involve which, I believe, puts me in a great position to be secretary this year. I will be keen to help the committee out where possible and, with my experience of communicating with external speakers, I will hopefully be able to organise some exciting and worthwhile talks from a wide range of backgrounds. I would love to be able to get some speakers in from the sustainability field whilst also catering to students looking for careers in the extractive industries and beyond. I hope you will consider voting for me to be DLB Secretary.
