Given the expressed desire to know more about CEO succession decision-making and ways in which to optimize the talent around the boardroom table, we are pleased to announce that we have secured Julie Daum's commitment to join us at WCD LA/OC on Thursday, May 30. As you probably know, Julie is the Leader of Spencer Stuart's North American Board Practice, based out of NYC. She will lead us in conversation on these most important board topics.
As a side note, we also look forward to having Julie get to know each of you better in the context of her firm's future board search.

She consults with corporate boards from companies of all sizes, from Fortune 10 to pre-IPO companies. She has conducted more than 1,000 board director assignments, recently recruiting outside directors for Johnson & Johnson, Amazon, Nike, numerous IPOs and spin off boards.
A frequently-quoted expert on governance topics, and with many appearances at conferences and in the media, Julie started her career at McKinsey in LA, then managed Catalyst's board of directors' activities, before joining Spencer Stuart.
