What to expect at the Solving Succession webinar and panel discussion

Find out what to look forward to at our upcoming webinar on 20 October: Solving Succession – Leadership Evolution in Times of Uncertainty

Small to mid-sized organisations grapple with several succession planning concerns, from filling leadership gaps to passing key knowledge to the next generation. Larger organisations also have complex succession needs, with a strong focus on developing talent and ensuring business continuity.

Some do succession planning well and sleep well, and then there are those of us that lose sleep at night.

In this upcoming free webinar, the panel of executives and HR experts will discuss succession planning holistically, from finding areas of common concern to sharing practical advice and best practices.

Delegates are invited to check their Succession Readiness before the discussion to see where they stand. The readiness checklist can be completed online or downloaded as a PDF.

The panel of experts, moderated by Nick Smith of CHRO, will discuss their firsthand experiences around succession planning and how they resolve their concerns.

  • Nomaswazi Ngwane, Human Capital Executive: Mass and Foundation Cluster at Old Mutual
  • Linda Roos, Group Head of Human Capital at ooba
  • Graham Fehrsen, former CHRO SA Managing Director and Founder of Novo
  • Caitlin Quibell, HFMtalentindex Senior Psychologist

This group represents broad perspectives, from small to large organisations, executive officers to executive coaching, and business to psychology. The discussion will centre around areas of interest of attending delegates.

Research psychologist Caitlin Quibell will refer to insights from the yet to be released State of Succession Survey to bring a data perspective into the discourse. She will share practical advice on best practices to get started with or improve succession planning.

After the webinar, delegates will receive a free copy of the State of Succession survey and the Ultimate Guide to Succession Planning, including all webinar resources and a summary of salient outcomes.
