CEO of OMV AG, Austria
Over the past 20 years CEOs have witnessed tremendous upheavals as a result of globalisation and technological change. In our 20th CEO Survey, nearly 1,400 CEOs share their views on the impact of these forces on growth, talent, trust and society. In this short video, PwC’s global chairman Bob Moritz, reflects on how today we’re at an inflection point; for leaders it’s now time to both raise and communicate the role of business in society and the positive impact it can have.
Austrian top managers started the year 2017 with quite mixed feelings: especially when looking to global economic growth and national framework conditions, there is little room for real optimism. However, the belief in their own company gives them hope. The importance of digitalisation – with all its challenges – is also firmly anchored in the consciousness of CEOs. They only lag behind in its practical implementation. All this is shown by the key findings of our 20th Annual Global CEO Survey. Besides almost 1,400 top managers from all over the world, this year again, 30 CEOs from Austria were surveyed on the most important issues concerning growth and trends in the business world.
We conducted in-depth, face to face interviews with 20 CEOs from around the world. Watch their individual videos to hear their views on key events, trends and issues shaping business decision-making today.
