• CEOs Signal Optimism for Q2 Business Climate

    As the second financial quarter progresses, a group of CEOs surveyed at the Annual Transformative CEO Summit in April signaled they are mostly optimistic when it comes to the economic and business climate of their respective industries.

    Of those surveyed, a plurality (39%) assesses Q2 as “strong” (14%) or “heading in the right direction” (25%); meanwhile, 32% say it is “holding steady.” On the other side, just 11% assess the economic climate for Q2 as “weak’” and 18% say it is “heading in the wrong direction.”

    While the April summit took place against the backdrop of the Russian war in Ukraine, rising inflation, persistent supply chain shortages and a surge in COVID-19 cases, executives have remained generally optimistic about the economic health of their respective industries.
