The CEO, the Chair and succession: stewarding a ministry’s critical relationships.

Strictly limited to board chairs, and CEOs / Senior Pastors / Principals

Melbourne morning and lunch, 26th July from 9.30 – 1.15 at The Hotel Windsor in the CBD

This is a rare opportunity to spend a morning and a meal with other ministry CEOs, Senior Pastors, Principals, and Board / Council Chairs from around Australia, and engage with a respected international spiritual leader and author Peter Greer who has written on these topics. Peter will be addressing some of the content from his books ‘The Board and the CEO’, and ‘Succession’, and leading discussions to help attendees wrestle with both the spiritual and practical aspects of the chair / CEO relationship, and the complex process of leadership transition & succession. According to Peter, ‘an organisation is never more vulnerable to the risk of mission drift, than during the process of executive succession.’
