Keynote Speaker

Siphiwe Moyo

International Conference Speaker, Facilitator & Author

Employees are often told about the inevitability of organisational change. The world of work is changing and therefore they must "adapt or die"; they are told. Senior executives and HR professionals often quote the legendary Jack Welch, "If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near."

Yet, when people have been subject to substantial change already, or are operating in an uncertain environment that affects their future prospects, they may rapidly reach the limits of their capacity to absorb and respond to more change. While all employees need to accommodate and adapt as organisations change to meet external complexity, the transition process can be difficult where change is radical rather than incremental. A "get on with it" approach often fails.

In his keynote, Siphiwe, who teaches leadership, organisational behavior, as well as personal and organisational change will assist HR leaders on the art of leading people through tough, turbulent times.
