HUMAN RESOURCES SUMMIT 2024: The Africa Edition

People first: Driving organisational excellence through HR

Cape Town | Durban | Johannesburg


Looking to adapt and flourish in a rapidly evolving role as an HR professional? Curious about the tech tools and innovative solutions that are influencing the HR industry? Join top HR experts to gain insights and prepare for the challenges and intricacies of the future workplace.

The Human Resources Summit is a prestigious event that brings together HR professionals, industry experts and thought leaders to discuss and explore the latest trends, challenges, and strategies in the field of human resources. This summit serves as a platform for networking, knowledge sharing and collaboration, aiming to drive the future of workplace excellence.

To amplify the depth of networking, knowledge sharing, and intellectual exploration, we are excited to unveil a new format for the upcoming Human Resources Summit. First, delegates will be privy to an insightful presentation by a leading subject matter expert, setting the stage for meaningful discourse to follow.

The session then leads into our facilitated round table discussions, adopting the inclusive and dynamic “World Café” style. This method fosters deeper exploration of topical issues by facilitating dialogue within smaller, more focused groups. Each thought-provoking session will span 30 minutes, shaped within the context of a relaxed café ambience. This laid-back setting is intended to spark open and candid conversations, promoting a sense of comfort and camaraderie among peers. Herein lies a unique opportunity: learning directly from your colleagues in an environment conducive to the free flow of ideas and shared wisdom.



This summit promises to offer something for every professional in the HR realm, catering to a spectrum of interests and focal areas.

Our agenda spans a diverse range of topical discussions:

  • Talent management
  • Wellness / Well-being
  • Organisational Culture
  • Learning and Development
  • People Analytics
  • Performance Management
  • HR Tech
  • Change Management
  • Employee Experience / Engagement
