CEOx1Day Program


The CEOx1Day program is designed to close the gap between students and CEOs by identifying promising future leaders and giving them the opportunity to learn business and leadership skills from top Canadian executives.

Founded over 10 years ago by our Odgers Berndtson colleagues in Germany, the CEOx1Day program provides leadership development, career insights, and executive networking opportunities to the world’s most promising students. Today, the program runs in more than 10 Odgers Berndtson offices worldwide including the United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil, Belgium, Australia, South Africa, and Singapore.
