Thought leadership from Odgers Berndtson

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.
