Ghislaine Couvreur, CEO of VimaGhislaine, CEO, Switzerland

My whole experience with CEO Worldwide & Female Executive Search has been very positive. Through their network I have secured a highly interesting CEO role, working in Switzerland in the Artificial Intelligence sector. Initially secured as an 6-month interim to permanent CEO assignment opportunity, this has now been made a permanent role. For companies wishing to attract diverse talent - and to tap into a new pool of international candidates - I'd highly recommend working with CEO Worldwide & Female Executive Search. Whilst for candidates, this is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your skills and be considered for a range of international positions.

I was impressed that Female Executive Search platform is dedicated to female executives, which is less common in the industry. I appreciated that the team actively promotes female candidates to increase digital exposure. The firm features a female executive of the month on the website, social media and the newsletter. They are very focused on DEI. I encourage candidates and employers to explore this platform.I was impressed that Female Executive Search platform is dedicated to female executives, which is less common in the industry.

Shantha, CEO, India

Having grown up the ranks to reach the level of a CEO, I understand the effort it takes to get there and on an individual capacity I support every individual who has a dream to get there. I often come across situations where women who are talented, give up their dreams midway to accommodate domestic affairs and other reasons, just because they are women or they simply face indecisiveness in terms of pursuing their careers. Being a CEO of a Multi National Logistics firm, I believe in gender equality and I undertake upon myself to motivate people along the path of their careers.

It has been a great privilege to be associated with CEO WORLDWIDE . Their initiative, 'Female Search Executive', helps bridge the gap of progressive employers and talent amongst the women. This platform enables women to showcase their professional talent where they can list their profile, share their best practices and exhibit their skills. The platform showcases their participation at conferences, panel discussion accolades drawn and awards won. Through this executive search they can search for opportunities in the global arena and can become a part of the community of like minded people.

I have witnessed the activities of Female Search Executive and greatly appreciate their creative and consistent pursuit of excellence.

Asha, CEO, IndiaAsha, CEO, India

I have been associated with France Dequilbec over the last 5 years. Her commitment to CEO Worldwide and Female Executive Search to seeing women leaders take on board roles is amazing. The work that she is doing is a great cause because we see gender parity catching up to some extent in middle management levels but when it comes to board roles, numbers are still a far cry from where we should be considering the demography ratio. I wish France great success in her mission and endeavors.
