Odgers Berndtson’s global scheme giving promising students a glimpse of CEO life.

What is CEOx1Day?

CEOx1Day is designed to uncover promising future leaders and give them an opportunity to walk in the shoes of a senior business leader.

By spending a day with the CEO of a well-known business or organisation, students learn the level of responsibility and the complexities required for today’s leading executives while also getting a feel for how these leaders create value in their organisations. It is also an opportunity for CEOs to connect with and better understand what drives the next generation.

Odgers Berndtson’s CEOx1Day is running in several countries. Find out more about CEOx1Day in your country, below.
