The Crucial Debate on Labour Complexities and Education and Training Deficiencies & Efficiencies
Are you thinking about currency fluctuations, tough trading conditions, tightening belts in organisations and pressure points in industries such as mining? Are you concerned about where you’ll find the skills you’ll need to achieve short-term goals, never mind longer term visions of competitive success? How will you keep your employees engaged and happy, at all levels? Does the future seem uncertain?
We are also thinking about current realities in South Africa and the many challenges we face. But we recognise that we have a bank of experts from all walks of life who have much to share and debate, and that together we can approach our challenges to produce a future that’s less uncertain and more prosperous.
We are launching a new offering called the Crucial Debate series to do this. It is a space to debate the crucial, the tough, the ‘this keeps me awake at night” issues. The series is about looking at what can we do rather than focusing on what we cannot influence or change, and the first one runs from the 16-17 March 2016.
Would you like to join us?
On day one we have:
- Jonathan Goldberg, CEO of Global Business Solutions, who will deliver a precursor to a programme that will explore labour-related challenges and landmark labour law cases that’ll help delegates to position their employee relations matters appropriately in the workplace.
- Toni Gillham, CEO and founder of Pinoak Consulting, who will share the Houston Method for engaging people and supporting maximum productivity of leaders and teams at all levels in organisations. This method addresses development, training and performance challenges.
- Lizwi Nkala, CEO of GroupThinq, who will discuss the ever-changing landscape of business as it ushers new and complex challenges so called “black swan” events. This session takes delegates through 21st Century thinking skills and techniques.
Day two brings you:
- Firoz Patel – DDG of DHET
- Prof William Mogalepuru Makgoba – Former Vice Chancellor, University of KZN
- Suzanne Hattingh – Head: Learning for Performance Improvement
This day focuses on education and training, contextualising what’s working and identifying what we can do to improve what isn’t working, as related to our spheres of influence.
