NWU to host 2nd annual Human Capital Summit

On 12 and 13 July 2018, the North-West University’s (NWU’s) School of Industrial Psychology and Human Resource Management, will be hosting its annual Human Capital Summit.

This year will see the second rendition of the summit taking place at the Riverside Sun Hotel in Vanderbijlpark.

The summit is aimed at all industrial psychology and human resource management professionals, academic staff and researchers, as well as postgraduate students within these disciplines. According to the organisers the summit provides an ideal opportunity for students to network with industry professionals and to learn more about current trends and future employment opportunities.

During the course of the summit the delegates will explore the role of academic programmes in preparing students for the world of work and, the need from industry in terms of graduate skills and knowledge.

The well-known radio and TV personality, Mark Pilgrim, will be the keynote speaker during the summit’s gala evening. Mark, who has hosted hundreds of corporate events over the past two decades, is a BCom Industrial Psychology graduate himself. He is a firm believer that one is never too old to learn, and has recently returned to university part-time, studying towards his MBA.
