Shifting global parameters and heightened uncertainties highlight our universally shared vulnerability and point to how interconnected we are as a society: economically, socially, politically, and culturally.

A new breed of leaders and managers with a new set of skills is needed to navigate these turbulent waters.

This was the view of three speakers at the 2022 HELM (Higher Education Leadership and Management) Summit whose aim is to explore developing leadership for sustainability and change in higher education in South Africa, on the entire African continent and globally.

The summit will also consider practical implications for leadership development in the context of disruption, complexity, change, and in the pursuit for the Engaged University.
