Major showcase in high-profile Times CEO supplement secured by the Academy for Chief Executives

Academy for Chief Executives Press Release 1 December 2016 Times Banner The Academy for Chief Executives has taken a significant step to raise its profile by supporting a major national newspaper supplement about ‘The Future CEO’. The 16-page Raconteur produced supplement, run in The Times newspaper on 1 December, features the Academy in a prominent position on page two with a special membership offer for readers. In a time of dynamic change and uncertainty, the supplement focuses on how the role of the chief executive is changing, and examine some of the challenges that lie ahead. Academy CEO, Ian Price, said: “As an organisation devoted to unlocking the potential of every business leader, the Academy is already helping CEOs adapt for the future. “This prominent national supplement is a welcome opportunity to showcase the invaluable work of CEOs across the country and the challenges they face. We’re proud to play our part.” The supplement covers topics such as culture, leadership and the routes to becoming a CEO. It also examines some of the new thinking in boardrooms including how large, well-established corporations can work in collaboration with start-ups. The publication also delivers some valuable insights into newer concepts such as design thinking. Executive education is covered in the report, which asks whether enough has been done to exploit new learning channels to help executives make the most of their limited time. The Academy model – world class speakers, peer to peer learning with other successful business leaders combined with one to one coaching, mentoring and guidance – has helped hundreds of CEOs guide their organisations through times of change. But the Academy too is looking at new ways to support CEOs with some new digital developments planned for next year. Matthew Jones, publishing manager for The Times Raconteur series says in his introduction: “The report presents an independent view of the unprecedented rate of change of the CEO role, highlighting how both individuals and companies can keep pace. “With 70 per cent of CEOs admitting they are concerned about their lack of experience in mission-critical future issues, and 65 per cent citing strong concerns about the potential impact of ‘digital Darwinism’, this report comes at a truly timely and pertinent juncture.” Ian Price added: “The combination of digital disruption and the fast-changing economic and political environment means that CEOs have to learn to adapt. “This report will play an important part in bringing these topics out in the open.” Ends For further information, please contact Robyn Bourne: robyn.bourne@chiefexecutive.com 07771 690433 NOTES TO EDITORS The Academy for Chief Executives The Academy for Chief Executives believes in improving lives by unlocking the potential of every business leader.
