2nd Annual HR Leadership Management Excellence 2017Date: 14th to 17th March 2017, Cape Town


In order to thrive in increasingly challenging circumstances, organisations are having to become more adaptive, resilient and customer centric. In this complex and volatile environment an organisation’s competitiveness increasingly depends on its employees, and the business function responsible for acquiring, developing and retaining the people that provide this competitive advantage is HR.

Today’s HR professionals require a strong functional acumen coupled with a strategic skillset and mindset set that allows them a seat at the business table in order to create workplaces that attract and retain great talent. Setting and implementing the people agenda successfully involves partnering with business leaders to guide change, drive employee engagement and create environments that stretch and develop talent with more diverse backgrounds and expectations than ever before.

This four-day Master Class will take participants through the key models that underpin strategic HR, and are critical in the development of future HR leaders. Over the four days we will build the critical capabilities required of today’s HR professionals and through a stimulating case study and organisational visit, bring to life the opportunities and challenges facing HR Leaders. You will learn about how other global and local organisations have risen to this challenge and build your skills and confidence to set an organisation’s talent strategy, identify and assess potential and build employee engagement. Together we will prepare you for a career journey to HR leadership – you are the future.
