Deloitte Hosts Annual CEO Forum

CEO confidence is high

22 Nov 2018 | 09.38 am

Seven out of ten CEOs have acted to mitigate against the potential impact of Brexit, according to a survey from Deloitte of attendees at its annual CEO Forum.

The main areas of mitigation action included scenario planning, changes to supply chain and engaging with government and other agencies.

The top managerial challenges cited by CEOs include availability of skills, retention of talent and competitiveness.

Deloitte CEO Brendan Jennings commented: “Despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, US tax reform, currency fluctuations and Irish tax, Irish business leaders remain optimistic. It’s really interesting that confidence in revenue growth is high among CEOs, but longer term we see that they are more cautious.”

“Today is a milestone day as we host our 30th forum. There has been a resounding and common thread through each forum and that is the relentless focus that Irish organisations have had on growth.”

The Deloitte and Enterprise Ireland CEO Forum at Dublin Castle has a speaker line-up including Siobhan Talbot, Mark Gallagher of Performance Insights, Susan Spence, Bob Etchingham, Alan Walsh, and Julie Sinnamon.
