CEOx1Day Program

Now in its seventh year in Canada, CEOx1Day has given over 100 university students access to the country’s top CEOs for a day of mentorship and leadership. Open to third and fourth-year students enrolled in a Canadian university or a degree-granting college program, the CEOx1Day program matches about 20 students in five cities across Canada (Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa and Calgary).

Thousands of student applicants have gained valuable skills and experiences for future job searches throughout the 4-stage CEOx1Day selection process. Each stage provides students with a different learning experience, as students receive meaningful feedback from an online leadership assessment and engage on phone and in-person interviews with Odgers Berndtson’s search professionals.
