Bethesda, MD, December 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Seth Kahan and other members of The Summit Global Network released the results of a worldwide survey of top CEOs that focused on leading growth. Survey participants included leaders of organizations in a wide variety of sectors and collected their outlooks on growth, including threats and opportunities on the horizon.
Among those surveyed were sixteen professional society and eleven trade association executives. This provided varying and contrasting results between each of the two types of associations, as well as with their private sector counterparts.
Seth Kahan said, “I was pleased to have so many of my clients participating in the survey, especially from the association sector. There were some important learnings captured. For example, the survey results indicated that over two-thirds of all participants, including 56% of professional societies and 63% of trade associations, foresee growth ahead, showing general optimism. Respondents indicated that the greatest threat to this growth is the still volatile and uncertain economy. Targets for international growth were identified. Interestingly, trade associations are not looking to expand in Japan or Australasia, whereas professional societies are.
“The Summit Global Network consists of 22 boutique consulting firms in seven countries on four continents. I am proud to be a member in good standing. We share resources, best practices, personnel, and expertise. The combined intellectual property of our members comprises over 70 commercially published books, a thousand published articles, and thousands of audio, video, and public speaking appearances. Through our combined reach, thousands have expressed interest in having this report.”
Topics of the survey included: Growth Predictions, Growth Goals & Targets, International Expansion, Business Innovation, Greatest Threats, Employee Rewards, and other important topics.
