Odgers Berndtson

Odgers Berndtson is proud to have founded the CEOx1Day Program, a two-stage selection process designed to uncover and develop Canada’s future leaders.

With more than 1,000 colleagues in 67 offices around the globe, Odgers Berndtson is deeply committed to providing integrated leadership advisory services. Odgers Berndtson focuses on recruiting, assessing and developing senior executives and board members who work across Canada and internationally in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, with an emphasis on industry and functional specialization. The firm also offers executive interim and leadership assessment services to help clients build world-class leadership teams.

Odgers Berndtson’s Leadership Advisory Practice helps executives and their teams improve performance. The firm’s unique assessment method, LeaderFit™, addresses critical business issues through leadership assessment and development, personal coaching, succession planning, and strategy consulting. The leadership practice plays a key role in the CEOx1Day program, as students take part in an online leadership assessment in the second phase of the selection process. The assessment is designed to help them uncover their key leadership strengths and potential.

The firm is also an industry leader in matching highly qualified executives in short-term assignments. Its Interim Executive Practice offers Canada's largest, pre-vetted roster of candidates and providing companies with on-demand executives to solve their immediate business needs.
