Odgers Berndtson - CEO for a Day 2020: An all-female business leader line-up

For the sixth edition of its flagship CEOx1Day event, Odgers Berndtson is proud to present these female business leaders who will allow top-students to follow them during a normal working day:

  • Christina Foerster, CEO of Brussels Airlines
  • Olivia Natens, Country Director Benelux of Medtronic
  • Hilde Vernaillen, CEO of P&V Insurance
  • Sophie Dutordoir, CEO of SNCB/NMBS
  • Ilham Kadri, CEO of Solvay

In a country with too few women at the top, they are powerful role models for successful business careers in Belgium.

Five Master students will be selected to spend a day with them to learn about the responsibilities and complexities required to lead some of Belgium’s prominent companies. The event will take place in February-March 2020.
