AICD | Breakfast with Ilana Atlas - Succession Planning

Event Date: 
28 June 2016
Hyatt Regency Perth
99 Adelaide Terrace

The appointment of the CEO is arguably the single most important decision made by the board. It will affect the company’s culture, determine the company’s ability to attract a high performing executive team, and is key to driving shareholder value.

With shortening CEO tenures (4.2 years in 2012) there is an emphasis on disciplined CEO succession planning and execution. On the one hand, CEOs from outside the organisation can freshen executive thinking and strategy and help capitalise on emerging market opportunities.

On the other hand, the “home grown” CEO could potentially outperform an external appointment, cost less and deliver fewer surprises.

Succession planning is not just a board event or board process, but part of the company’s overall leadership development.

We hope you can join us, along with your colleagues and fellow directors, for this networking breakfast followed by a presentation and interactive discussion with Ilana Atlas MAICD.
