Bespoke career services for leaders


ICEO supports the unique career pursuits of accomplished senior leaders. Their professional and personal goals form the foundations of our bespoke offering which is personalised around each ICEO candidate to give them the dedicated support and access to the resources they need to achieve their career goals.


We partner with senior leaders, organisations and boards as they navigate critical personal and organisational decisions and the complex challenges associated with senior leadership transitions and other executive career needs. Our bespoke services and solutions build on over five decades of global leadership consulting experience, bringing together deep sector and advisory expertise to inform strategic talent decisions and career planning.



Hand picked team of specialist advisors


Our specialist advisors support leaders in achieving their goals which could range from managing their personal brand, assessment, strategic networking and relationship building, business information research, and board service. Our ICEO Advisors provide a systematic approach to networking that brings efficiency and structure to an otherwise daunting undertaking, enabling executives to fully leverage their networks and ours.


ICEO advisors bring both national and international experience, reflecting the executive career opportunities to those operating at the highest level. Networking at the senior executive level in the pursuit of new opportunities can be a complex and delicate process with reputational risk. 



“In today’s talent war, it’s really important that businesses manage their employment brand. Engaging in ICEO services is a way to really respect the individual executive, and that ultimately reflects positively on the business brand.”
