Richmond Events’ Business Panel Report – Economic Outlook


Our latest Business Panel report on the UK economic outlook is now available. Headline findings include:-

  • Only 8% rate the government’s handling of the economy as very good, 52% as acceptable, 28% could have been better and 8% as shocking. 
  • The panel predicts interest rates will be at (average) 0.8% in 1 year’s time and 1.88% in 3 years’ time.
  • Not a single respondent expects the economy to grow significantly over the coming year, whilst 24% expect it to grow marginally.  A further 45% expect it to stay much the same as it is now, whilst 29% expect it to shrink a little and 2% shrink a lot.  These figures are down versus last year.
  • The Retail sector is the most pessimistic, with 92% predicting things are going to get a little or a lot tougher (transport & travel are the only ones who predict ‘carnage’!)  
  • Less than half the panel feel their organisation’s profit will increase in 2012, though up from 41% last year.  19% feel their profits will fall this year, 6% more than last year.  3% are undecided.
  • Budgets – mixed news. The proportion expecting an increase has remained similar to last year, 23% down from 24%. However this figure is still dwarfed by the 33% expecting a decrease (though also down from 37% last year). The remaining 44% don’t expect to see a change.

  • When asked where improvements can be made in terms of leadership, the most popular responses were relationship building with senior colleagues, followed by better communication skills and encouraging more innovation and creativity.
  • The majority of people have picked up their leadership skills from a combination of people they’ve worked for.  Only 10% say they acquired them from their current boss.
  • The panel has more confidence in their team delivering the strategy and vision of their organisation than they do in the organisation’s leaders.

  • Only just over 25% currently admit to having both the desire and ability to one day become the leader of an organisation.

  • Good news for David Cameron, less so for Ed Miliband.  Whilst 65% of the panel rate Cameron’s leadership qualities as good or excellent, the corresponding figure for Miliband is 8%.  In terms of being poor / very poor the figures are 8% and 56% respectively.
