THEME: Proactive, Responsive & Visionary Leadership –
A People Management and Organisational Perspective

IPM 61st Annual Convention & Exhibition

There are two significant developments that are taking place in the world today, namely:

  1. VUCA: The world today is characterised by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, acronym – VUCA. The speed of change and a volatile global economy in combination create a complex environment that is increasingly becoming difficult to navigate owing to the complexity of the challenges that need resolution. In such a complex environment, the levels of uncertainty and ambiguity are bound to increase as well.
  2. Fourth Industrial Revolution: Adding to the challenges presented by the VUCA world is a phenomenon called the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which analysts say “will arguably become the most disruptive and transformative shift in human history as its impact will be felt at individual, societal, business and government levels.


One thing is certain though: the world of yesterday is rapidly disappearing before our eyes and this requires that we take stock to reflect on our ideal future and what we need to do as business executives, government officials, civil society and individual level. These disruptive and transformative developments call for visionary, proactive and responsive leadership.

As nations and organisations have over the centuries been saved by visionary leaders, we invited our own expert associates, partners, academics and industry research specialists from government and private sector to our 61st Annual Convention & Exhibition to lead discussions, share strategies and tested solutions to some of the poignant challenges we encounter in the workplace.


The convention covered a variety of topics under the subthemes: Proactive & Ethical Leadership, HR Governance and Risk Management, Orgànisational Culture and Engagement.


We share some of the gems with you, and invite you to examine how you can apply the insights and advice shared. Most of the experts are also available to spend time focusing on your unique environment and help you through some of your organisations challenges.
