The early registration deadline for Succession Strategies: Building Your Leadership Bench is quickly approaching.

According to recent studies, almost two thirds of HR managers believe that succession management is the largest concern facing companies today.

We are ready to help you navigate this issue. SIOP’s 10th Annual Leading Edge Consortium (LEC), to be held October 17-18, 2014, at the Loews Chicago O’Hare, SIOP is proud to present an impressive lineup of speakers whose experience and expertise in the field of succession management will provide attendees with knowledge and skills they can use to help solve their most pressing succession concerns.

The Leading Edge Consortium is devoted to topics that are core to effective succession management, such as how to:

  • Strategically align succession management with the organization’s goals and future direction, making it a business imperative
  • Effectively manage succession globally
  • Identify and develop high-potential leaders
  • Build talent pools that are strong, broad, diverse, and capable

Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in “Ask The Expert” small group discussions with expert facilitators from companies such as Google, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, IBM, and Prudential. These break outs will focus on the design of succession management systems.

This is the meeting your colleagues and competitors are talking about. This is your opportunity not just to hear presentations but to exchange ideas and best practices with industry leaders and respected peers in an environment designed to foster learning and networking.

The consortium includes lunch on Friday and Saturday, breaks, and a reception on Thursday evening. Registration also includes access to all presentation materials from the event as well as the Resource Guide, a compilation of presenter references and citations to relevant articles, web pages, and publications on the topic of succession management.

Make plans to join your colleagues in Chicago for a 1 ½-day event to learn about the latest insights and strategies for managing today’s high-potential and succession challenges. Register today or learn more at www.siop.org/lec!
