International events platform Global Leaders, in association with SAS Institute South Africa,will bring global thought leader, author and strategic human resources educator Dave Ulrich to South Africa.

Ulrich will present on Next Generation Human Resources on 8 August 2007, live at The Forum at The Campus in Bryanston, Johannesburg.
Ulrich is a world-renowned speaker who has consulted with many of the top 200 in the Fortune 500, and is considered by Forbes Magazine to be one of the world’s top five business coaches.
Warren Cowan, Business Development and Marketing Director at SAS South Africa, the Global Leaders Africa Knowledge Partner, says Ulrich’s teachings align themselves strongly with the philosophy of SAS: “SAS’s mission is to add value for our customers and be central to their success, giving them the power to be more effective and efficient, from the HR department right through to top level management and across the rest of the enterprise.
Ulrich is a global expert on HR strategy, and a well respected management educator and business guru, and as such, his knowledge collaborates perfectly with SAS’s vision of giving customers the power to make the right decisions, and ultimately giving them “The power to know".
Dave Ulrich has an impressive list of credentials, and has published more than ten books on business, HR and leadership. Most recently, Ulrich was ranked first in HR Magazine’s ‘HR Top 100: Most Influential Thought Leaders’, and before that has been ranked by Business Week as the world’s top Management Educator, and as the number two consultant by Executive Excellence.
He is a partner in and co-founder of the RBL Group, as well as a professor of business at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. His session will be a highly interactive presentation that will highlight the Principles and Practices of Next Generation Human Resources.
The day will include case studies and real world examples, and will cover content on how to compete and be successful not only on a local, but on a global scale, as well as essential topics such as labour policy, creating equity, retaining talent, rewarding employees, HR’s role in the boardroom, leadership and mitigating risk through good corporate governance.
