About CEOx1Day

CEOx1Day (CEO for a Day) – an event exclusive to Odgers Berndtson – matches students with top CEOs in Singapore, providing them with the opportunity to walk in the shoes of a CEO for a full day.

CEOx1Day is designed to uncover some of Singapore’s most promising future leaders.

Undergraduates apply to spend a day with a top senior leader to learn about the responsibilities and complexities required to lead some of Singapore's leading businesses and organisations.

At the same time, CEOs can better understand what drives the next generation of leaders.

Alexis Lee: “Unlike an internship, a mentorship program or leadership course, CEOx1Day offers a fully immersive, condensed and privileged opportunity to learn about a CEO’s thought process and leadership approach in his/her typical work setting. Nothing can get more real than that.”

Alexis spent the day with Hari Krishnan, CEO PropertyGuru Group (CEOx1Day Singapore)

Hari Krishnan (CEO PropertyGuru Group): “It was an unique experience. You have someone who is extremely driven, who is clear about what she wants to do in life. And for us, we see ourselves as a large technology company and our future is going to be all about talent. So understanding what talent of the future is going to look for is critical. And as a CEO, I need to have a finger on that pulse, to understand that a little better.” (CEOx1Day Singapore)
