Ryan Cameron: “The opportunity to shadow Jon Stanton and engage with corporate level executives was a fascinating experience. The day consisted of various meetings with the executive leadership team in Glasgow, a teleconference call to North America and a visit to Weir Group’s Research & Development Centre. Whilst walking around the research facilities it struck me how enthusiastic the employees were when engaging with Jon and this highlighted the importance of a global leader being visible to all levels of dedication required to be a successful Chief Executive."

Philippe Delusinne (CEO RTL Belgium): “It’s important to show younger people what a CEO does, how the company works and how we manage the complex human network within it. Rather than silently observing, Nicolas has participated, been proactive and shown a lot of interest in what our company does – there was a cross-fertilization between us – we have learned from each other. This a great initiative and I’m glad to be part of it.” (CEOX1Day Belgium)
