How do you set goals for long-term transformation, short-term strategic agility, and the building of stakeholder ecosystems all at the same time?

With so many CEOs making a quick exit in recent years, it’s more important than ever for your board to have a succession plan in place well before you need it. Some boards perform the CEO selection process brilliantly while some repeatedly make the same mistakes. Wherein lies the difference? This session will explore the tenets of a strong CEO succession process, including the current CEO’s role, evaluation of internal and external candidates, and the board’s ultimate responsibility.

2:15 – 3:15 pm Session Options

  • Derek Zaba, Chair, Shareholder Activism Practice, Sidley

The increasingly sophisticated and complex manner in which activists target companies requires a cohesive strategy by a company’s management and its board long before an activist comes knocking. Have you tried challenging your own strategy before an activist does it for you? This session will walk through the key measures to most effectively prepare your board for the unexpected call from an investor.

  • Jim Hale, Board Member, Mitek, Marin Bank and ACI Worldwide
  • Gene Scriven, CISSP, Chief Information and Security Officer and Head of Global Cyber & Corporate Security, ACI Worldwide

This session will help your board put cybersecurity in the greater business context to better identify risks, understand the gaps and create a stronger plan. You’ll leave with a list of action items and questions to ask your chief security and privacy officers to assess your current environment and ensure a holistic strategy that provides for proper board oversight.
