Optimism is high

Overall, Canadian CEOs are confident in the outlook of their organizations and industries, and their ability to outperform against the general economic backdrop. They are embracing technology, leveraging data and analytics, and pursuing innovation.

While this all sounds promising, are Canadian CEOs truly focusing on the right issues and taking full advantage of the best solutions? The significant contrasts that exist from their global counterparts suggest that Canadian CEOs may want to take more cues from our international peers.

The race is on

Clearly, Canadian executives are feeling that the race is on; but it remains to be seen whether they act quickly enough and with the right focus to effectively transform and evolve. Among our findings:

  • 75 percent of CEOs agree that the next three years will be more critical to their industry than the previous 50 years;
  • 74 percent of CEOs believe their company will remain largely the same in the next 3 years;
  • 98 percent are concerned about the loyalty of customers;
  • 13 percent feel confident that they are fully prepared for a cyber-event.
