The NACD and Baker Tilly are proud to host a board-level discussion on Successfully Transitioning Executive Leadership: One Shot to Get It Right. While the agenda topics will be heavily influenced by the attending directors, discussion topics will touch on all aspects of a successful CEO transition:

  • Anticipating change-management needs, especially when replacing a long-serving CEO
  • Avoiding a mass exodus of your top talent
  • Determining the outgoing CEO’s role—it’s not black and white
  • Communicating and pursuing the new leader’s vision
  • Understanding the critical role of the board during this process
