“The theme ‘Business Unusual’ aims to set the tone for new thoughts and ideas that will break free of limitations and traditions.
“I mean letting go of the certainties of the past often thought of as “best practices” in our sector in pursuit of a spirit of inquiry and experimentation towards new approaches perhaps next practices,” Kanyenda said.
He said the key features on the agenda of the IIM Annual Conference are represented by the meticulously selected issues and emergent challenges that are deemed to be of paramount significance and practical relevance for the market.
The conference will again give global and national leaders in the industry the opportunity to exchange knowledge and engage with topics and challenges that face the industry.
Due to the global and local attendance at the event, networking opportunities, which lead to many beneficial business relationships, are a significant draw card for professionals wishing to attend.
