Indra K. Nooyi

Chairman & CEO, PepsiCo | May 12, 2009
Indira Nooyi described the capabilities future CEOs will need to lead successful companies.

“I decided to take a risk and stand before you, the CEO of a large corporation, ready to do a speech on what the CEO of the future might look like,” Indra Nooyi said when she spoke at the Economic Club because, she explained, “In a recently published survey, academics and industry experts came out as the most trusted spokespeople in the world. Do you know who was almost at the bottom? Chief executive officers of large corporations.” She summarized her thoughts about CEOs of the future by saying, “The central skill of the new CEO is, in my view, adaptability.”
