Human Resources, organiser of Talent Management 2013, has unveiled the details of its second session on the topic of succession planning.

The session will place emphasis on hot issues such as how organisations can create a channel of successful CEOs to increase performance culture.

To begin, Cara Reil, vice president of talent and leadership development at SingTel and Shaun Ruming, McDonald’s vice president of HR and Training APAC & EMEA, will each share a real life case study on how organisations can identify the best employee fit for a leadership role.

The two in-depth presentations will be followed by an engaging panel discussion, moderated by Virendra Shelar, head of talent development AMEA at Sony Electronics.

Industry leaders joining Shelar for the discussion include Tristram Gray, vice president of human resources SEA & Oceania, Ericsson; Steve Mosely, president & managing director of Hong Kong, Macau and Myanmar, L’Oreal; Christian Hobson, group head of talent and learning, Standard Chartered and Mark McCutcheon, general manager of operations for Malaysia and Singapore, DDI.

This group of senior, experienced HR leaders will assess and discuss succession planning mistakes, the importance of the CEO’s presence and involvement and gender balance in leadership.

“The importance of succession planning has only really been emphasised in the region over the past decade and remains one of the more difficult aspects of the HR function for many practitioners,” said Rebecca Lewis, editor of Human Resources.

“Identifying and harnessing the best – and the right – talent to develop has got to be at the forefront of every HR leader’s mind during this talent crunch. I’m delighted to have such experienced presenters and panellists on board for this vital topic.”

Talent management 2013 will be held from 12–13 March at the Novotel, Clarke Quay in Singapore.
