Our beautiful, inviting new headquarters in the heart of Ottawa’s iconic Byward Market is a testament to our executive search services. Situated right on bustling Rideau Street, we’re in the heart of the action at the crossroads of government, finance, tech, and many other sectors. Conveniently located in walking distance to OC Transpo busing and LRT stations, public services aplenty, ample parking and can’t miss-sights of Canada’s Capital, we’re excited to assist you from this professionally appointed office space. The paid parking in the massively expanded Rideau Centre is an ideal choice, though you can also try your luck in the market itself with on-street parking or, more easily, in other underground and above-ground facilities nearby.

We are proud to work with some exceptional companies in a wide variety of industries.

It is so easy to get lost in the business, to the point where working on the business is sacrificed. Our experience with Keynote allowed us to achieve our goals without sacrifice. Their professionalism, knowledge and understanding of the market combined with the time taken to understand our objectives, made our expansion seamless. Their process took all of the guess work out of our hands which gave us the ability to move forward efficiently and effortlessly.”

I was lucky enough to work with the Keynote team on several occasions. I appreciate the work they do and do very well. They find hundreds of potential candidates that can do the job, present the top candidates that they have thoroughly evaluated to fit within our company, and help to onboard and ensure their long-term success. I would strongly recommend using them to find the best person that will succeed.

Keynote took a keen interest in all facets of our organization to ensure they had a grasp on how a potential candidate could provide executive leadership, value and fit within our culture. They went above and beyond to market the opportunity to a targeted group of individuals that they had screened in-depth to ensure that an extremely impressive short-list of candidates was presented for review by the Board’s Executive Search Committee.
