Odgers Berndtson is one of the world’s leading executive search firms with 27 offices in more than 50 countries. It finds and places some of the most senior C-suite executives across all business, industry and non-profit areas.
In 2014 Jonathan Arnold, now a Partner at Orwell and then Editorial Director of content agency Archant Dialogue, proposed that Odgers would greatly benefit from a global, thought leadership print and digital publication that focused predominantly on boardroom issues. Although reticent at first, Odgers Berndtson recognised that this was a tool that could be multi-functional and assist greatly in demonstrating that the company has its finger on the pulse of the key issues that affect boardrooms – and people – around the world. Now in its third year, Observe has become a major part of Odgers’ marketing armoury. Issue number 11 shown here focused on the crucial subject of work: where it’s going, what are the significant issues that affect it and how can business and boardrooms prepare for a new age of automation.
Jonathan Arnold continues to edit Observe.
