As in years past, PwC’s survey results offer insight into how leaders are navigating the many pressing issues of the day.

The geopolitical landscape has changed dramatically since PwC surveyed chief executive officers around the globe in the fall of 2021. At the time, CEOs, including the 452 Canadian respondents, exhibited a very bright outlook on what the following year might bring in terms of global growth prospects.

But there were also clear signs of worry about the impacts of key threats, such as cybersecurity, macroeconomic volatility, geopolitical uncertainty, and health risks, on global economic growth.

Leaders were also paying close attention to how disruptive global megatrends—like climate change, social inequality, and declining trust—could affect their organizations. If anything, recent developments have only served to amplify the level of concern about many of these threats and risks.

PwC’s survey highlights why building trust with a broader range of stakeholders is critical to navigating today’s rising uncertainties and sometimes conflicting forces of change. Now is the time to act boldly to ensure sustainable long-term success.

Join us as we explore Canadian CEOs’ perspectives on:

  • leadership in a time of crisis
  • turning the net-zero challenge into long-term opportunities
  • building on agility advantage to sharpen digital strategy
  • harnessing the power of trust

Presented by The Conference Board of Canada in collaboration with PwC Canada.
