The 56th International Conference and Exhibition

As organisations navigate through an ever-changing business landscape, the ability to cultivate resilience, with a focus on people-centricity, has emerged as a paramount quality. This theme aims to delve into the multifaceted concept of resilience within the context of managing both people and businesses.

Against the backdrop of prevailing economic events, including a minimum wage review, global economic recession, and other adverse economic conditions, the theme of ICE 2024 will set it apart. Individuals and businesses alike will seek to hear the CIPM’s insights and recommendations on navigating through challenging times.

This presents a valuable opportunity for delegates to equip themselves with the knowledge and tools necessary to lead people and businesses through the storms of change with confidence and resilience.

Human resource practitioners play an important role in grooming and cultivating leaders who will lead, grow, and transform their countries for the goodwill and benefit of everyone. This year’s International Conference and Exhibition (ICE) aims to refocus human resource practitioners’ attention to their roles in nation building and national transformation, as well as the importance of leadership capacity building and human capital development in the growth and development of nation states.

The conference sessions will provide attendees with knowledge, insights, tools, experiences, frameworks, and new models required for leading and managing people & building and growing nations to thrive and flourish.
