Future CEO

Nov, 2017

With the rise of social media, organisations are under an unprecedented level of scrutiny, and at the helm is the chief executive, navigating a route through a sea of challenges from a volatile political horizon, to public relations disasters and corporate responsibility. The Future CEO special report, published in The Times, features insights into the world of the CEO. Pay disparities are high on the agenda, as are shareholders' interests and questions on whether the CEO's role is still necessary. Also featured is an infographic on women at the top, comment on the dawn of a new era of brand building and the importance of addressing mental health in the workplace

In the FTSE 100 alone, the number of CEOs named either David or Dave (eight) outnumbered the total number of female bosses (six). This infographic explores the largest companies led by women worldwide and how female CEOs got to where they are today
