CEO Succession: The Search for Executive Talent | Industry Forum
Established and emerging business leaders, board members and governance practitioners in corporate and non-profit sectors are invited to the Melbourne Centre for Corporate Governance and Regulation’s inaugural industry forum, convened with support from the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Corporate accountability remains an ongoing focus of public and political commentary. The development, recruitment and remuneration of executive talent is thus of renewed importance, as business leaders grapple with the prospect of sharper scrutiny and a tighter regulatory landscape following the Financial Services Royal Commission.
This industry forum, convened with support from the Australian Institute of Company Directors, provides a timely opportunity to set the tone on a matter of crucial importance for boards across Australia, engaging with senior executives, board members and future leaders in business and the non-profit sector alike.
The discussion will be followed by an opportunity to network with established and emerging business leaders, as well as engaging with senior faculty at the Melbourne Centre for Corporate Governance and Regulation.
The forum will be guided by the contributions of an esteemed panel:
- Leigh Clifford AO FAICD, Immediate Past Chairman of Qantas Airways; former Chief Executive at Rio Tinto from 2000 to 2007.
- Louise Davidson MAICD, Chief Executive at the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors; Director of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and International Integrated Reporting Initiative.
- Paula Dwyer FAICD, Chairman of Healthscope Limited and Tabcorp Holdings Ltd; Director of Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited and Lion Pty Ltd.
- Glenice Maclellan, Australian Managing Partner at Egon Zehnder; former Group Managing Director, Consumer Division at Telstra & Vice-President at AT&T.
The forum will be chaired by Profs Margaret Abernethy and Ian Gow, Directors of the Melbourne Centre for Corporate Governance and Regulation.
