PwC has published its 22nd CEO survey, which gives insights on the key opportunities and challenges facing our most senior business leaders today.
PwC states that “When it comes to global economic growth, quite a lot, as it turns out. PwC has been surveying the world’s chief executives since before the turn of the century — 1997, to be exact — so this year, we decided to take a look back, as well as forward, to analyse the predictive power of CEOs. We found that CEO survey responses over the past decade reveal a strong correlation between chief executives’ expectations for their own organisations’ revenue growth and actual global GDP growth the following year. In other words, CEOs’ revenue confidence can be considered a leading indicator of the direction of the global economy” (22nd Annual Global CEO Survey, 2019).
