An organization promoting research on leadership development and providing training on entrepreneurship, LEAP Africa, is set to launch its sixth book titled “Attract, Motivate and Retain Top Talent,” aimed to fully explore the Human Resources challenges associated with building enduring organizations.  The book will be launched during the upcoming CEO’s Forum.

The key challenge entrepreneurs continue to grapple with is finding ambitious and talented employees who can bring the CEO’s vision to life. It is against this backdrop that LEAP Africa is inviting CEOs in Nigeria to its 7th CEO’s Forum themed “Addressing the CEO’s Human Resources Challenge.”

According to a Press Release, the CEO’s Forum, which is funded by Ford Foundation, typically draws approximately 800 entrepreneurs from across LEAP’s alumni network, as well as leading CEOs in Nigeria.

LEAP Africa’s CEO’s Forum is a unique platform for entrepreneurs, CEOs and managers in the public and private sectors to interact, discuss and share insights on business sustainability and succession planning. Over the past ten years, through its Business Leadership Programme and CEO’s Forum, LEAP has inspired, empowered and equipped over 3, 300 entrepreneurs. The CEO’s Forum exposes business owners to the importance of planning for their succession and instituting effective systems, structures and values within their organization to ensure long term sustainability. In turn, many of these beneficiaries implement changes that transform their organizations.

“We strongly believe that the participants at the Forum will benefit immensely from the wealth of experiences of our speakers,” the release stated.

For this edition, the speakers for the event are:

• Mr. Tosin Runsewe; Chief Client Officer, Guaranty Trust Assurance Plc.

• Mrs. Nike De Souza; Managing Director, People Temp Limited

• Mr. Rob Mollien; President, Together Safe, Netherlands
