Leadership Conference penciled for October

The 7th Annual Institute of People Management Conference is scheduled to take place on 16 and 17 October at the Safari Hotel.

Themed “Leading in Turbulent Times”, the 2017 Conference will run over two full days, offering a list of the most powerful local and international speakers that will enrich delegates experience and will officially be opened by Minister of Public Enterprises, Leon Jooste.

This year’s Conference is special in the sense that we will put an emphasis on leadership. The theme is fitting indeed, given the challenges our economy finds itself in, it presents us with countless opportunities if we remain steadfast in our quest for leadership,” said Institute of People Management (IPM) President, Tim Ekandjo.

The programme will feature prominent leadership topics such as ‘The Leadership Architecture in Turbulent Times’ which will be presented by Nene Molefi from South Africa, ‘Free for Success in Turbulence’ by Sigi Lange and ‘Leaders without Titles’ by Louise Shixwameni from the Office of the Prime Minister.

Of significant interest on the programme is the two panel discussions: Day one will see a hot topic being discussed titled ‘SME Bank-Lessons Learned’, while day two will discuss a very topical issue titled ‘Corporate Governance in SOE’s-does it exist?’.

Other topical discussions featuring on the program is ‘Corruption in Business’ which will be tackled by Tarah Shanika from the NCCI while Suta Kavari from the National Planning Commission will discuss NDP5.

Meanwhile, closing this year’s conference will be special guest, Lynette Ntuli, who is the CEO of Innate Investment Solutions, a South African entity that provides property, asset management and infrastructure solutions to the built environment and custodians of land and property portfolios.

This year’s conference will once again end with the IPM Excellence Gala dinner that will see outstanding Human Resource professionals being celebrated and recognized in various categories.
