ArcelorMittal Rising Star Summit: The 2017 Agenda

The World of the Millenial Leaders

Predictions for the world of 2025 and insights from its leaders, present and future. What will the global landscape look like for our Leaders of the Future? How will they shape and mould it? We will hear from South Africa’s most talented young employees (under 40) and from the next generation; South Africa’s top undergraduates. They are the ones shaping the future and will be the ones leading it. In an era of dramatic change, what attributes will they need to stay competitive?

In this one day conference we will explore the megatrends for 2025 and discuss the implications for our next generation of leaders.
