On May 31, a dynamic group of Moroccan American business leaders will host a CEO Summit in Washington DC to identify the best American and Moroccan companies as well as high-potential managers and leaders who are seeking joint ventures and business partnerships.
Because those with the right talent and experience are more likely to deliver results, businesses should begin their succession planning efforts by identifying and selecting leaders with a scientifically validated leadership talent assessment.
No amount of experience will turn an average leader into a great one. It’s equally important for businesses both in Morocco and the United States to prepare high-potential leaders with experiences that will develop this potential. When it comes to preparing emerging leaders for executive roles, very specific kinds of experiences benefit high-potential leaders most.
These types of experiences are so rare that they need to be reserved for candidates with the highest potential. No one wants to waste a breakthrough experience on someone who won’t benefit from it—and may botch the job.
This is exactly what the upcoming CEO Summit is aiming to achieve. This summit will boast a large group of Moroccan-American successful business leaders who have gained a lot of experience and who now feel that this is the right time for them to share and make others in the US and Morocco benefit from their business expertise.
We all hope that this initiative will be followed by other similar ones to accompany the current of economic development in Morocco but more importantly, to stimulate joint ventures that will put into practice the agreements elaborated in the Free-Trade Agreement (FTA) signed by The United States and Morocco on March 2, 2004.
The agreement entered into force on January 1, 2006. The United States-Morocco FTA is a comprehensive agreement that supports the significant economic and political reforms that are underway in Morocco and provides for improved commercial opportunities for U.S. exports to Morocco by reducing and eliminating trade barriers.
