  • CEO Confidence Picked Up in Q1, but CEOs Remain Pessimistic Entering 2023

    February 10, 2023

    The Conference Board Measure of CEO Confidence in collaboration with The Business Council stands at 43 to start 2023, up from 32 in the final quarter of 2022. The Measure's improvement early in Q1 2023 represents an uptick from the extreme weakness seen last year, which brought it to lows comparable to the depths of the COVID-19 recession in 2020.
