Odgers Berndtson initiative CEOx1Day allows students to experience leadership by shadowing a top chief executive. CEO Kester Scrope and student Isabelle Mettan-Ure describe their day together.
'I hope she got a sense of the breadth of a leader’s role'
Kester Scrope, CEO of Odgers Berndtson, on his day with Isabelle Mettan-Ure.
At Odgers Berndtson we are very privileged to have extraordinary relationships with business leaders across the world. We had this firmly in mind when we launched the CEOx1Day initiative around a decade ago. Put simply, this is a way for us to use our networks in a very personal way to help young people about to leave full time education and go to work.
We have 61 offices across the world and have run the programme internationally for many years—a genuinely global initiative. We are hugely grateful
