  • What of the leaders of tomorrow, asked PwC? How do they see these global trends, and do they have the same priorities as previous generations? We decided to answer some of these questions by undertaking a parallel survey with over 200 young leaders from AIESEC, looking at ttwo groups - CEOs and young leaders - side by side, exploring where they agree and differ, the implications for companies looking to attract the best young talent, and what today’s CEOs can learn from those who are most likely to succeed them.
