CEO Engagement with Sizwe Nxasana
March 17 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am
In a rapidly changing operating environment, businesses that have the right talent at the right time and in the right place will thrive and lead the future, but has tertiary education in South Africa evolved sufficiently to ensure that the South African economy is future-proof?
Having gained significant experience in corporate, government and academic spheres, join us as we hear from Sizwe Nxasana, the former CEO of Telkom Group and FirstRand Group as well as former chairman of NSFAS and founder of Sifiso Learning Group, about the current state, as well as future, of tertiary education in South Africa.
Specifically, Sizwe will be taking a deeper dive into the following topics:
- How can we fast track the production of talent that is future-proof and able to contribute toward economic growth?
- What is the role, if any, of big business to support the tertiary sector?
- How should tertiary education institutions adapt their training models and programmes?
- Is government a help or hinderance & what is the expectation of government moving forward?
