"Australia is seen by global HQ as an island of hope in a sea of despair." Australian CEO of Global Company
We were fortunate to host a conversation with over 20 of Australia's leading multinational CEOs as part of the Tenfold Australia Forums experience.
Despite the recent second wave of COVID19 in Melbourne, many of those joining us reported 2020 has had more upside than downside and a handful said it has been the best year of their career.
These comments related in part to financial performance with a large number operating at levels beyond their run rate prior to the pandemic.
However the CEOs' comments were by no means all about the dollars. Most reported 2020 has encouraged them to double down on their people and culture, to focus on what really matters, i.e. their customers, and to give back to the community around them in this time of need.
Certainly a silver lining to the COVID19 cloud.
Our thoughts go out to all on the frontline in Victoria and around the world still in the storm.
