Leading People, Growing Nations

The 54th International Conference and Exhibitions

The world has recently witnessed unprecedented levels of crisis and turbulence, ranging from the global economic recession to the COVID–19 Pandemic, then to the Great Resignation, the Russia–Ukraine War amongst others. Nation states are currently facing leadership gaps, which have stifled their growth and development on various frontiers–economic, political, socio–cultural, technical, and human capital development amongst others. 

These unprecedented changes have now placed a demand and a burden for a new approach to leading people, and ultimately leading and growing nation states. An approach that requires leaders at all levels in the society and the nation at large to step up their game, and demonstrate vision, transparency, integrity, empathy, accountability, humility, nimbleness, authenticity, respect, trust, and openness as well as Values and competencies sufficient to ignite personal and national transformation. Recent events in the world illustrate unequivocally that effective leadership is vital for growing people and, eventually, growing nations. 

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.
