The “Race for Talent” pervades the global economy like never before in history. In times of turbulence, leadership quality and depth are essential to the organization’s performance, health – and survival. That’s why developing your Leadership Pipeline – Finding, Growing and Retaining Top Talent – is imperative for pharmaceutical, healthcare, financial services and all other industries during the current period of economic downturn, intensified global competition and political uncertainty.

Whether companies are growing or shrinking, talent management is a central activity for success and survival – be it to find and develop the best staff before the competition does or to identify and retain high performers during workforce reduction programs.

At this working conference, you will benchmark, learn and network with executives from Leadership Development, Human Resources, Operations Management, Commercial and R&D, Strategic Planning and Workforce Management at Fortune 100 companies. All will share lessons learned, best practices, winning strategies, and pitfalls to avoid when building a talent pipeline to ensure long-term success.
