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 are inviting all and sundry to join us at the 61st IPM Annual Convention and Exhibition to reflect on these momentous developments under the theme: “Proactive and Responsive Leadership”. This theme is underpinned by the following sub-themes:

  • Proactive and Ethical Leadership

  • HR Governance and Risk Management

  • Organisational Culture and Engagement

Thought leaders, HR professionals, business executives and government officials will be sharing with us the type of strategies, systems and practices that we would need to implement in our various organisations to demonstrate proactive and responsive leadership!
