Mike McGrann, managing partner at TELOS Group, is adamant: this is not a discussion about retirement and
death, but a strategy discussion that should start now.

Join Mike and a panel of regional industry leaders in a lively and inspiring discussion.

A successful leadership transition requires a great plan and disciplined set of action items. It can be a difficult conversation, but one that must be addressed as a critical part of a company's strategy discussion. Done right, the process creates great value for the business and becomes an important part of your legacy. The discussion will tackle:

• The mindset required for a successful transition
• The critical ownership-level questions that must be answered to prepare for the foundation of succession
• The vital role the next generation plays as enablers of the process
• How to include succession in strategy discussions and the regular business planning process
• Real-life examples of how successors were chosen, or how successors empowered themselves to become the successor
• How a well-educated, solid succession plan creates great value for the business and its stakeholders

Speaker(s): Keynote: Mike McGrann, Managing Principal, TELOS : Leadership Panel: Andy Strine, President, Investors Realty; Gianmarco Martuscelli, Owner, Martuscelli & Sons; Anthony Wright, Managing Partner & CEO, Green Line Business Group

Co-Sponsor(s): Delaware Business Times, Creative Financial Group, Brighthouse Financial, Harvey Hanna and New Square Capital
