Director Roundtable:

Internal and External CEO Succession Planning

An Essential Board Responsibility

Hiring a CEO is to bring someone into an organization’s pinnacle of responsibility. The stakes are high and outcomes can be dramatic. As a generally infrequent event, most directors may not have needed experience in a strong CEO succession process. How should a board frame the CEO succession process? What questions need to be asked? Who is on the team that should lead the process? What are the most critical, core elements in a strong CEO succession process, and what key elements are often overlooked?

You are invited to join in private Director Roundtable luncheon conversation to explore these issues with other Directors. Our special guests who will bring key insights to the conversation are:
