Findings of the Slovak CEO Survey conducted by PwC and Forbes magazine are every year presented at the CEO discussion forum. We connect to PwC's global CEO survey that is presented at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The forum is marked by an informal, friendly atmosphere, where business leaders discuss current topics arising from the survey's key findings and share their opinions and best practices with doing business in Slovakia. Discussion is moderated by Juraj Porubský, Forbes Editor-in-Chief.

Topics of the discussion forum that took place on 3 April 2014 related to:

  • Outlook for growth and how to ensure it

The Most Respected CEO

At the discussion forum, The Most Respected CEO award was granted for the second time by the respondents of The Slovak CEO Survey 2014. CEOs were asked to name the CEO they respect and value the most for the way he/she manages the company and for his/her success and personal qualities.

“The Most respected CEO awards distinguish from other awards by the fact that it is a peer-to-peer, unique acknowledgement. CEOs are a tough bunch to impress, so being chosen by them as the most respected CEO in Slovakia is a huge achievement.“ says Todd Bradshaw, Country Managing Partner, PwC Slovakia.

The winner of the first year of award in 2013 was Mr Vladimír Soták, General Director and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Železiarne Podbrezová. This year, The Most Respected CEO award was granted to:

Mr Igor Vida, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of Tatra banka
