THE 8th annual Institute of People Management (IPM) conference will run from 12 to 13 November at Safari Hotel, the organisers have announced. The conference will be followed by the annual IPM Excellence Gala dinner at Hilton Hotel.
Tim Ekandjo, who serves as the IPM president, also announced this week that First Lady Monica Geingos will officially open the conference. The annual conference brings together HR professionals and people managers from across Namibia to discuss pertinent issues facing Namibia.
“I must admit that this year’s line-up of speakers and topics is most probably the best that I have seen for the past eight years, and while we know that our economy is in a challenging state, I would encourage all our HR colleagues and leaders in society to attend and invest in this once in a lifetime event,” said Ekandjo.
The two-day conference will feature 14 local and international speakers and will cover a broad list of topics in their fields of expertise.
The full list of speakers includes Donna Rachelson (Developing an Energetic Personal Brand), Tom Alweendo (The strategic role of HR Executives in Transforming corporate institutions), Karabo Moloko (Disrupt Yourself), Pat Smythe (Introduction to HR standards in Namibia), Vera Bronkhorst (Talent Management in Emerging Markets) and Sam Shivute (Developing a Culture of Professionalism in an Organisation).
The list also includes Siegfried Lange (Y Coaching?), Vincia Cloete (Board vs Management, Compliment or Compete?), Cebile Xulu (How HR need to respond to the 4th Industrial Revolution and Create a Future Ready Workforce), Ileni Gebhardt (Workplace Bullying), Martha Namutuwa (Cooperative Education, Progress and Challenges), Mari-Nelia Hough (2018 Employee Benefit Survey) and Thebe Ikalafeng (How will You Lead?).
At the annual IPM Excellence Gala Dinner various HR professionals will be recognized in eight different categories. Claire Mawisa has been announced as the Guest Speaker at the gala dinner and Lize-Ehlers will perform on the night.
