Leon Ayo, Managing Director of Odgers Berndtson SA ,chats to Thabiso Tema on the POWER Drive about the Odgers Berndtson CEO X 1 Day Programme.

CEO X 1 Day is a newly launched programme from executive search firm Odgers Berndtson Sub-Saharan Africa. The Programme pairs seven MBA students with leading CEOs for a day of intense work shadowing. The result? A common view has emerged from both students and CEOs that authentic leadership – characterised by developing true relationships, a deep sense of respect for people from all walks of life and a genuine commitment to learning from others – is the only way to help the modern organisation realise its full potential.
