The Arthur Edward Director’s Cut Report draws on in-depth responses from people in Leadership roles in the industry. All panel members are in senior management roles, with almost half in the C-Suite, Owners or Board Members.

The Director’s Cut Report was created in response to the findings of our 2021 Salary Survey & Industry Report. Over 750 people participated, working at all levels, in all industry sectors, all around the world. It revealed enormous variations in people’s hopes and expectations for their future careers.

Responding to this uncertainty, we asked some of the industry’s most influential leaders to share their opinions and insights. We have focused on areas that affect people’s working lives and careers.

We’d like to thank our industry friends and colleagues for taking the time to participate.
