They say that in consulting, no two days are alike. Yesterday certainly offered a range of new perspectives for QVARTZ junior consultant Jens Dueholm as he got to spend a full day in the shoes of CEO at DT Group, Søren P. Olesen. Jens is one of six graduate students who after a rigorous recruitment process have been selected to participate in CEO x 1 Day, a programme launched by executive search company Odgers Berndtson, matching the most promising future talent with some of the country’s leading CEOs.
After an eventful and exciting day, Jens says: “It was certainly a huge privilege to be given the opportunity to follow Søren P. Olesen for a whole day through all kinds of executive meetings. What I enjoyed most about the day was the opportunity to engage in dialogues with Søren between meetings and over lunch. For me, it was both inspiring and insightful to hear some of his thoughts on leadership, DT Group as a business as well as potential career paths”.
