The number of UK CEOs expecting the global economy to improve over the coming year has more than doubled, according to PwC’s 21st annual CEO Survey.
More than one third of UK business chiefs (36 per cent) believe global economic growth will improve, compared to 17 per cent last year, the most confident they’ve been since 2015. Almost nine in 10 (88 per cent) UK CEOs are optimistic about their organisation’s growth prospects for the next 12 months.
Despite this level of confidence, business leaders cannot afford to be complacent though when it comes to putting their own strategies for growth in place. The pace of technological change is transforming and disrupting industries and leaders must identify where and how they can grow if they are to future-proof their organisations.
