Talent Managers Network Breakfasts prove popular

By Carol Butcher – 

Some of our readers may have seen the 1961 American romantic comedy “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” The movie was loosely based on Truman Capote’s novella of the same name. Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard were memorable in their roles.

Did the restaurant Tiffany’s exist? No. The term “breakfast at Tifanny’s comes from Hepburn’s character, Holly Golightly, window shopping at Tiffany & Co while eating breakfast.

The film was a hit and Talentalks’ monthly Talent Manager Network Breakfasts are also proving extremely popular.

Korn Ferry hosted our first breakfast in January. Malcolm Pannell, Country Chair, Korn Ferry Hay Group in South Africa was the inaugural speaker. His topic, “Why the future of work is human,” provided much food for thought, and lively debate.

Sasol hosted our second breakfast last Thursday. Karl-Johan Hasselstrom, MD Universum EMEA presented on the topic “A brave new workplace.” Willie Barkhuizen, Vice President HR COE/P&OE also provides some insights as to how Sasol manages talent. It is very clear that it isn’t business as usual.

PWC and Metaco Consulting will be hosting our third networking breakfast at PwC Business School in Sunninghill on Thursday 30th March.   The topic, “Tomorrow’s World, Tomorrow’s Organisations.” presented by Prof Peter Hawkins.

Learn how organisations world-wide are transforming themselves to be “future-fit” for the world of tomorrow.
