Leadership lessons from the front line

Since taking over as CEO of Rio Tinto Group in January 2021, Jakob has dealt with the fall-out from the destruction of aboriginal cultural heritage in 2020 and his own company’s findings of a culture of systemic racism, sexism and bullying in 2022, all while steering a global mining and metals giant through a commodity boom. Jakob will share his leadership lessons and his vision for the future of Rio Tinto and the global mining industry.
