Enhanced Executive Search Process


We find more qualified candidates

We expand our services beyond common recruiting methodologies. We combine the very best people in the recruitment business with cutting-edge technology and screening tools to find the right talent for your business, even those that are not currently seeking new opportunities.

Talent & Profile Mapping

Through organizational analysis, stakeholder consultations and market research we will develop a position profile, identify the leadership characteristics required and develop a research and headhunting strategy to ensure we find highly qualified candidates

We take a multi-channel marketing approach

Using our expertise we’re able to market your role in the right way to the right people using the right channels to generate interest for your position. We use highly personalized and targeted messaging to ensure we’re able to attract as many qualified candidates as possible


We screen candidates more effectively to find the best fit.


Predictive Psychometrics

We put all of our high valued shortlisted candidates through several personality, cognitive and psychometric tests. This objective information provides further information as to who the candidate is, what they bring to table, what environments and management styles will maximize their performance

Team Dynamics & Performance Drivers

By using the same psychometric testing on the leadership, top performers and peer groups at our clients we can start to map the likely team dynamic and success factors. In addition we can isolate potential conflict areas plus ways a new candidate can complement an existing team. This holistic evaluation approach will ensure that the candidates put forth will be able to perform at their peak with your company’s culture and working environment.

Thorough interview approach

Our team combines decades of experience in the art of interviewing to ensure we’re able to extract all of the necessary information from candidates. We share this experience through dedicated interviewing coaching services and provide interview structure, generate question sets and even lead the interview process, as required.


Post-Placement Support.


One-on-one executive coaching

Our executive leadership coach will use a customized approach for each executive to develop, engage and optimize your talent. The overall objective of our coaching program is for executives to acquire, develop and maintain effective leadership skills and behaviors through considerable self-analysis and reflection. This culminates in the development and execution of an action plan that is designed to assist the individual in maximizing their productivity and effectiveness.


We have developed a comprehensive onboarding process that focuses on successful integration and achieving optimal performance. This process is guided by regular feedback from both the leadership team and the executive to ensure that expectation alignment and communication serve as the foundation for the company’s success.

Jumpstart Program

In order for new executives to make a meaningful, long-term contribution to the organization they serve, then starting on the right foot is critical. We’re not just committed to placing executives in the right role, we’re committed to seeing them succeed in that role. Sustained success comes from a deliberate, focused approach that bridges strategic priorities with effective tactical implementation.

To support new executives our team partners with Rhapsody Strategies


and will be working closely with your new hire to identify exactly how they can step into their new role as successfully as possible.

We’ve delivered the JumpStart to hundreds of leaders. Over and over, they tell us that it’s worth every minute of their time. They leave the JumpStart energized, excited, and ready to implement the plan that we’ve put together.

Attract and enable the talent you need to succeed.


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.
