In the fourth annual GLG CEO Survey report, we asked more than 450 CEOs from a broad cross section of industries and regions across the globe about their experiences last year and outlook for the year ahead.
Despite rising inflation and interest rates, some of the executives we surveyed expressed optimism about their company’s growth, but confidence seemed weaker than in previous years. The report found CEOs are facing a confluence of challenges even as the pandemic waned with 80% of business leaders surveyed across the Asia-Pacific region listing macro concerns as a major external factor likely to impact their business in 2023.
GLG welcomes Warren Hogan, former Chief Economist at ANZ Bank alongside Fergus Clarke, GLG’s Head of APAC Surveys who will be discussing the following:
- The biggest risks facing the Australian economy
- Labour market and head count expectations for the year ahead
- Why climate risk is top of mind for most Australian CEOs
- The changing nature of work and managing work-from-home productivity
- Capital expenditure and investment plan priorities
