Discover the upcoming Talent Agenda Series Southern Africa Event

Are you a HR or business leader in Africa? Do you have a passion for emerging markets and strategic insights? 

It gives me great delight to write Talent Agenda Series’ first blog, introducing you to our upcoming event taking place from 25-26 October 2017 in Johannesburg.

The Talent Agenda Series, since its inception 4 years ago, builds on the experience of our parent Global Career Company, which has worked alongside Human Capital leaders throughout the African diaspora for over 14 years.

The Series is the leading human capital platform, bringing HR and business leaders together across each region in Africa to tackle talent management and capacity development challenges. Through interactive sessions, cutting edge research and thought leading expertise, local, regional and multinational organisations can connect to share best practice, network with peers and develop solutions to leverage the expanding talent pool and drive business growth in a time of disruption.

Year after year, the Talent Agenda Series has gone from strength to strength, attracting some of Africa’s leading experts to talk and offer their opinion about this ever-growing market. This up-coming Series is offering over 20 guest speakers, ranging from HR Directors to Global CEOs, Chairmen to Vice Presidents. We are most fortunate this year to be hosting the Honourable Silas Zimu, South Africa’s Presidential Advisor on Energy, who will be giving our Keynote Address on the future of the energy sector in Southern Africa.

Spread over the two days, the Talent Agenda Series Johannesburg will host a range of activities for its lucky participants. Not only will you be able to hear HR and Africa experts in deep dialogue about a range of issues concerning the current state of the African diaspora, but attendees will have the chance to join networking events, including coffee mornings, lunches, and even a champagne roundtable discussion on 25 October. And what South African event would be complete without a traditional Braai on the end of the first day?

The Talent Agenda Series has always believed in the importance of diversity in the workplace and as such, attendees to the Johannesburg conference will be able to participate a breakfast briefing on the future of women in African business and the methods current leaders use to promote such diversity across the panellists. Those lucky listeners will hear Brighton Mwiinga, the Head of Human Resources for Prudential Life Assurance and Precious Murena-Nyika, the Human Resources and Communications Director for Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe & President of The Institute of the People Management in Zimbabwe.
