About the Conference

The Conference Board CEO Challenge 2017 respondents set their focus on creating more agile, aligned, transparent, and responsive organizations built on a foundation of fiscal discipline, an engaged and resilient workforce, strong and inclusive leadership, and a willingness to nurture and develop talent with expanded twenty-first-century skills.

Building a strong leadership pipeline in support of this focus is key to achieving business success. It means letting go of legacy processes and outdated mindsets and creating new definitions and approaches to defining the leadership needed going forward, identifying critical roles and talent needs, identifying best new practices and processes for assessing, identifying, developing talent throughout the organization.

In the 13th Annual Succession Management Conference, we will focus on practices and processes that will take Succession Management into the future and enhance the partnership between HR and the business. There will be a prime emphasis on providing practical applications that can reduce complexity. Please join our thought leaders, companies, your peers in learning about and discussing practices that are taking succession into the future and how they can be applied to your organization.
