I’m joined by two guests today who are exemplary business owners within the mining and resources industry. In this episode we dive into their learnings and experience gained from decades of working together.
Peter Cribb and Josh Hunt have worked together for over 25 years, owning and operating their successful Brisbane based business, Resource Strategies, for the last 12 years. Resource Strategies provides services to the mining and resources industry, particularly specialising in environmental consulting and management. They work with large mining corporations and government agencies and have established an excellent reputation in the coal mining industry throughout Australia.
In this episode, Peter and Josh talk about their biggest learnings as business owners and talk about the importance of taking care of relationships, both with employees and clients. Having a business with a relatively small client base, they share how integrity is critical in building genuine professional relationships and also discuss their approach to working with large mining companies and government agencies and how they have successfully navigated the changes to shareholders within Resource Strategies.
Peter and Josh reflect on their early days entering into leadership roles and share the advice they would give to their former selves. They also share their tips for aspiring professionals entering into the business space, reiterating that you can never underestimate the benefits of hard work.
