    The Transition to CEO
    Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 8:30 am
    Cercle de lUnion Interallie 33 rue du Faubourg St Honor 75008 Paris

    The CEO position is the aspiration of most executives. The reality however is often very different from the promise. Within a few years of their appointment, many chief executives are gone and the rate of CEO turnover continues to increase in most regions of the world.

    • What are the challenges expected and non-expected of making this important transition?
    • Why do so many fail?
    • What experiences, skills, personalities and values are demanded at this leadership level?
    • How does a CEO manage the requirements of a Board and other stakeholders such as employees, investors, media or analysts?
    • And how do we help CEO succeed when appointed?

    To answer and discuss these questions, we are delighted to have Norman Walker, Advisor to Board and CEOs, host this session with a panel of two guests: Bernard Attali, Senior Advisor to TPG Capital and former CEO of several listed companies, and Evelyne Sevin (MBA 83J), Partner at Egon Zehnder International.
