While the Strategy& report admits it's not a crystal ball, taking a look at the changing role of the CEO over the past 100 years, and the new responsibilities the next cohort of chief execs will be facing down the line helps paint a vivid picture of what to expect of the CEO of the future.

    Event Garde
    In this guest blog post, Associations Now Deputy Editor Samantha Whitehorne contends, “I write about some of the innovative things that associations are doing for their meetings and conferences.
