Youth Best Practice Seminar: Leadership and Management



CESA hosted the Youth Best Practice Seminar: Leadership and Management on the 13th June and 4th July at the CESA head office in Johannesburg and Durban, respectively. This series of one-day seminars, initiated by CESA is aimed specifically at closing skills gaps in the engineering environment through empowering our youth. The underlying reason for these seminars is the philosophy that sharing of unique experiences by senior consulting engineers will result in more informed young professionals who will make informed choices, either to grow within the firm of their employment or to start their own consulting engineering firm.

“The engineering community is focused on the development and transformation of the profession, in particular the correct implementation of the science of engineering. In this vein, CESA has established several initiatives for consulting engineers to better serve industry and society at large,” said Neresh Pather, President of CESA.
Two broad topics have been identified as follows, within the seminars to enable different leaders / speakers to relate their own life stories and expertise coupled with best practices:
• Engineering, Business and Entrepreneurship
• Personal and Professional Development

It is in the spirit of the NDP Vision 2030’s theme ‘Our future - make it work’, that we are inviting Senior Consulting Engineers to invest in our youth and the development of SA’s consulting engineering skills that are critical to elimination of poverty and reduction of inequality.
