2022 – Mood of the Boardroom: Navigating through challenging times

The Herald’s Mood of the Boardroom 2022 CEOs Survey attracted participation from 108 respondents.

This year, 90 chief executives and 18 senior directors or chairs, took part. They include leaders of NZ’s biggest companies ranging across agribusiness, banking and finance, manufacturing, aviation and tourism, education, telecommunications, environmental services, energy, insurance, professional services, and more.

The survey was in the market from September 3-17.

The Herald survey is conducted in association with BusinessNZ. BusinessNZ also put 15 questions from the survey to its membership which includes SMEs. Those results are on B24 of this report.

The CEOs survey launched in 2002 within a Herald State of the Nation report.

The debate between the finance minister and their opponent is a feature of the annual launch breakfast. It has featured Finance Ministers, the late Sir Michael Cullen, Sir Bill English, Steven Joyce and Grant Robertson. The opponents have included Don Brash, Sir John Key, David Cunliffe, Amy Adams, Paul Goldsmith and now Nicola Willis.

Finally a huge thank you to everyone who has played a role in this year’s survey – particularly the participants – who despite the attractions of international travel (finally), made the time to take part.

We appreciate your effort.
