Davis & Gilbert, in partnership with The Holmes Report, is conducting an important confidential survey focused on succession planning at public relations firms.
Proper succession planning can substantially enhance the value of a public relations firm and ensure its long term success. However, our survey last year showed that over two thirds of all PR firms did not have a succession plan in place.
This survey will collect more detailed data on both the obstacles and opportunities presented by succession planning and the best techniques used to implement succession planning – whether succession is planned for the next year or the next decade.
The survey can be found here. The deadline for completing the survey is Monday, October 20.
Michael Lasky will be announcing the survey results at The Holmes Report’s Independent PR Firm Forum to kick off the October 27 sessio
n titled “Succession Planning for Smart Agency Owners.”
Brad Schwartzberg, Co-Chair, Davis & Gilbert’s Corporate Practice Group, will be moderating a discussion on this topic with a lineup of distinguished panelists:
- Margi Booth, CEO, M. Booth & Associates
- Lynn Casey, CEO, PadillaCRT
- Margery Kraus, Founder and CEO, APCO Worldwide
- Luke Lambert, CEO, Gibbs & Soell
- Larry Weber, Chairman & CEO, Racepoint Global
