LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE AGENDA

Thursday, November 3

All times are Mountain Standard Time

Facilitator: Craig Wiley, CEO and Founder, Transcend

One of the toughest challenges executive leaders face is overcoming accountability gaps that slow down the critical decisions needed to move the needle forward in their businesses and outpace their competition. Elite performance, accountability, and timely decision-making happen when leaders intentionally align their thinking and approach with the corporate strategy, empower each other to own their contribution and role, and promote cross-functional collaboration and information sharing. Join your peers to discuss how to implement the right leadership ecosystem that will allow your company to more effectively implement strategies that solve accountability, performance, and decision-making problems once and for all.

Facilitators: Adam Echter, Partner, Simon-Kucher & Partners; Brad Soper, Simon-Kucher & Partners

Data shows that firms where CEOs are actively involved in pricing outperform their peers by 30%. There’s nothing more central to fighting inflation than mastering this core competency. This Roundtable is dedicated to sharing best practices on how to gauge pricing power and effectively influence price performance from the C-suite. Simon-Kucher will facilitate a discussion ranging from immediate tactics for boosting EBITDA to longer-term strategies that significantly impact enterprise value.

Facilitators: Leslie Lauer, Managing Director–Wealth Management, UBS; Greg Fresh, Managing Director, Chartwell

Rising interest rates, a squeeze on consumers, a likely recession, a leveraged loan market softening, underlying equity values softening – the calculus for exit strategies is changing. Join your peers for a discussion around new exit considerations and the pros and cons of ESOP transactions, private equity recapitalization, traditional M&A and strategic sales, including tax and employees benefits and estate tax planning opportunities.

Facilitator: Sharon Watkins, CEO, RadiusPoint

Companies are feeling the squeeze on inflation costs and starting to face recessionary headwinds. What levers do CFOs have at their disposal to effectively navigate the environment and drive growth? How are (or should) CFOs be prioritizing investments for 2023, and how will these priorities be impacted by labor shortages? How can digital transformation help—and at what cost? Join other CFOs for a fast-paced discussion on critical budgeting issues for the year ahead, learn how others have had success in your problem areas, and leave with a number of usable best practices.

Roundtable

Strategic Planning Workshop

1:00 - 5:00 pm

Over 70% of Executives Surveyed Agree: Many Strategic Planning Efforts Lack Systematic Approach Tips for Enhancing Your Strategic Planning Process

Executives expressed frustration with their current strategic planning process. Issues include:

  1. Lack of systematic approach (70%)
  2. Laundry lists without prioritization (68%)
  3. Decisions based on personalities rather than facts and information (65%)

 

Steve Rutan and Denise Harrison have put together an afternoon workshop that will provide the tools you need to address these concerns.  They have worked with hundreds of executives to develop a systematic approach that will enable your team to make better decisions during strategic planning.  Steve and Denise will walk you through exercises for prioritizing your lists and steps that will reset and reinvigorate your process.  This will be a hands-on workshop that will enable you to think about your business as you use the tools that are being presented.  If you are ready for a Strategic Planning tune-up, select this workshop in your registration form.  The additional fee of $695 will be added to your total.
