This report unveils the new avenues to the future CEOs like ‘design-thinking’, skills required for a startup CEO and the escalation of high-quality online executive learning.

CEO and Vice-Chancellor, Dr Phillip Hallam was recently published in the Future CEO publication, where he gives his thoughts about the challenges modern day business CEOs will face in the future

Did you know that 72 per cent of chief executive officers believe that the next three years will be more critical to business than the previous 50? We live in an increasingly interconnected global world, with digital disruption and a host of other challenges for modern CEOs to navigate – so the role of the CEO is inevitably changing. We were thrilled to contribute to the Raconteur ‘The Future CEO’ report, published in The Times. It is a seminal guide for successful leadership and strategy in a time of increasing complexity.

Our contribution to the report on p.14 examines what skills and qualities an efficient future CEO needs and the key role of modern education within this.

The report also unveils new avenues for future CEOs like the concept of 'design-thinking',and looks at the challenges faced by a ‘chief everything officer’. The report also reflects on how future chief executives should bring about cultural change and put inclusivity at the top of the agenda.

In addition, it explores the ever present challenges of leadership, managing risk and productivity, but in the context of the modern world.
