Our team will ensure that you have opportunities to focus on issues impacting the recruitment and development of young talent – by learning from experts, discovering how they have dealt with the impact of Covid-19 and how they are treading the path towards a new normal. You will gain insight into the solutions and methods which can be used to handle common challenges experienced by graduate employers at this time. Using a combination of keynote speakers new and emerging insights and practical case studies, the format of the Conference will encourage sharing of information, feedback, and debate.
Attendance options will be as follows:
- In-person attendance, with accommodation (see venue details, below).
- In-person attendance, without accommodation

Our in-person venue is the African Pride Irene Country Lodge, centrally located between Johannesburg and Pretoria, and a mere 25 minute drive from OR Tambo International Airport.
With lakeside views that rival most paintings, African Pride Irene Country Lodge, Autograph Collection is a luxury upmarket hotel with spacious, luxury accommodations, dining, conference, function and wedding venues, and a spa. Winding down the oak-lined lane where cows graze in green pastures, you will arrive at a haven of peace and tranquility in the hub of South Africa’s economic heartland.
Note: should there be a significant increase in Covid-19 infections brought about through the Fourth Wave, we will consider postponement to Feb 2022.
