LUCILLE Maartens of Talent Window Africa, and leading tertiary institution, provides services including career development and focuses on the realignment of traditional outlooks on development and talent management in emerging markets.

The speed of growth in emerging markets often renders our traditional development models redundant and, along with other market dynamics, the complexity, volatility and unpredictability of emerging markets is forcing all institutions of learning to critically adjust approaches to education and talent management.

As a result, employers are increasingly seeking graduates displaying specific qualities such as: action-orientated, informed, ambitious, autonomous, display leadership, cultural fit, upbeat, confident, successful, honest, detail orientated, modest, hard working, marketable, passionate and “trainable”.

This urgent need for a new generation of leaders with complex, adaptive thinking skills and an awareness of social, ethical and environmental issues, has highlighted the importance of the development of effective leaders who are exposed to business sectors and given an opportunity to engage and explore these areas while learning. Maartens’s professional network - spanning across South Africa and Africa - includes, economists, psychologists, business excellence and professionals and professors. Using relationships from all sectors as a conduit, Talent Window Africa provides young people direct and focused access to the “world of work” through a range of bespoke career guidance services, supported by a wide range of associates, professionals and professors.
