Who is your next CEO?

One of the board’s main roles is leadership. Although succession planning is a key pillar of sustainable company performance, evidence shows that boardrooms still need to improve their pathway to successful leadership development. In their book ‘The next CEO’, Thomas Keil and Marianna Zangrillo illustrate with real-life examples why CEO changes often fail and how boards could increase the odds of success in selecting the right leader. A recent study published by MU came to the same conclusions: many of the CEO succession planning mistakes can be avoided. 

Without a clear mandate, CEO selection can only fail. Defining a mandate is complex because businesses need urgently to be remodeled. Boards need to review the purpose of the company and put it into practice (cfr Colin Mayer). Focus should not only be on sustainability but on regenerative business. Paul Polman and Andrew Winston brilliantly illustrated in their book ‘Net positive, How courageous companies thrive by giving more than they take’ why and how every business leader should transform their business as a force for good 

Please find below the preliminary programme. We are still waiting for the final confirmation of some speakers and will add them to the programme as soon as possible.
