Unleashing Talent as a Results Accelerator

Introduction by: Keith Giarman Managing Partner, Global Private Equity Practice – DHR International Hugh MacArthur Head of Global Private Equity – Bain & Company

For private equity firms, nothing impacts an investment return more than talent. But there is a fundamental shift in thinking underway around how to unleash higher levels of leadership performance to boost results. It has required a hard look at value creation and how top talent enriches returns. In this opening keynote presentation, Bain & Company partner Hugh MacArthur examines how companies can more closely align their talent management programs to investment returns. Unleashing talent as a results accelerator, he argues, is a golden lever to value creation.

Building D&I Talent Pipelines for Investment Advantage

Moderator: Dennis Grady Partner – Spire Search Partners

While many industries are making continual strides in their diversity and inclusion hiring efforts, private equity is lagging. Today, just 18 percent of all PE professionals are female, with just 10 percent serving in senior-level roles. For professionals of color and those identified as LGBTQ, the metrics are even more discouraging. In this special panel discussion, experts from private equity and executive search examine how diversity of experience, culture, race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation can provide distinct perspectives that engender a rich workplace and stimulate better investment decisions.

Effective New Tactics to Mitigate Talent Crises

Dan Campbell Partner – JM Search Alice Mann Operating Partner – Blue Wolf Capital Partners

Recruiting and retaining top talent has always been a critical priority for private equity firms looking to drive value for their portfolio companies. But in today’s hyper- competitive labor markets, there exists the real possibility that a failure to recruit and retain top talent will halt, if not reverse, growth. In this innovative dual presentation, Dr. Alice Mann, human capital operating partner at Blue Wolf Capital Partners, and Dan Campbell, partner at JM Search, will highlight some of the tangible impacts that ineffective talent management is having on portfolio companies – from revenue pressure and margin compression to quality, and even safety. They will discuss important new tactics that companies can implement to effectively address talent issues and mitigate these adverse effects.

CUTTING THROUGH THE LEADERSHIP CONFIDENCE CRISIS

Jeff Warren Managing Director, Private Equity Practice – Russell Reynolds Associates Jenna Fisher Managing Director, Corporate Officers Practice – Russell Reynolds Associates

Profound competitive advantages lie ahead for any organization that can predict the performance of their top leaders. But in today’s complex and volatile environment, leadership qualities are ever-changing – and that often means the traits that propel leaders into the C-suite can be different from and in sharp contrast to what predicts their success. To help sort it all out, search & leadership advisory experts Jeff Warren and Jenna Fisher – along with a panel of industry experts – will present proprietary results from the latest Russell Reynolds Associates’ Leadership Span™ assessment of C-suite portfolio company leaders. They will then examine the competing competencies required to navigate the frenetic pace, fluid environment and transformational demands of a PE-backed portfolio company.

Introduction by: Rick DeRose Co-Founder and Managing Partner – Acertitude Susan Levine Managing Director, Head of Talent – Bain Capital

Private equity firms bank their reputations on increasing the value of their investments. At its core, that means evaluating talent faster with a wider range of capabilities and stakeholders. In this wide ranging presentation, Susan Levine – managing director and head of talent for Bain Capital – reveals the systematic approach she takes to maximize value creation for portfolio companies, and how it begins and ends with connecting and integrating strategy with talent. She will discuss a number of intrinsic behavioral markers which correlate with success, including resilience, agility, and learning orientation. The unique leadership demands of private equity, she reveals, are creating a new set of talent blueprints for every private equity leader, their talent acquisition teams, and executive recruiters who serve them.

Determining Return on Talent Decisions and Investments

Moderator: Scott Gregory CEO – Hogan Assessments

PE firms are experts at determining expected rates of return on their investments. Putting the right talent in the right place to drive that return hasn’t come as easily. To avoid bad hires, maximize talent potential and seamlessly match candidate values with company culture, talent assessments often decode the intricacies of candidates’ behaviors and lead to optimal hires. The following panel comprised of talent experts from the PE sector, organization performance consulting, and executive search explore how private equity firms evaluate and develop talent and examine ways in which they determine return on talent decisions and investments.
