Our Strategic Partners

We have partnered with some of the FINEST organisations in the world in order to enhance our service to our clients. It is these prestigious partner organisations that, we are truly proud to be associated with, that give us the edge over other executive search firms.


We are proud to be partners of the Financial Times Non-Executive Director's Club. We work exclusively with the Financial Times to introduce Non-Executive Directors to some of the worlds finest organisations.  Our partnership allows us to contribute expertise, insight and to facilitate introductions for the alumni of the FT's Non-Executive Diploma.  For our clients, our partnership means that we have further access to recognised and accomplished Non-Executive Talent giving us an unrivaled Non-Executive network.


Owen James was incorporated in the summer of 2005. Embedded in the world of financial services, our goal was to introduce a new way of doing business. Instead of the traditional hard sell – the transactional approach typically adopted by events’ organisers – we wanted to create a platform for strategic engagement; to allow the “C” suite decision makers to discuss issues which were affecting both their own businesses as well as the industry as a whole; to challenge the status quo and seek solutions; to enable all parties to do better business.
In addition we wanted to create events which provided a vision of the future and which provided inspiration.
Nearly twelve years on this platform, which we call A Meeting of Minds, enables firms who are keen to engage with their key distribution channel to do so in a subtle and enlightening manner. Underpinned by substantial research into the different parties taking part, this platform is geared to ensuring a satisfactory return on investment – both financial and also of time.

We have partnered with NAL (Not Actively Looking) as a trusted partner to manage our inbound candidate enquiries. The benefit to the candidate of NAL managing our inbound enquiries is that the candidate can choose which select executive search firms to deal with as well as having the ability to update their profile and/or CV only once and this is then current for all firms that have been engaged. For Beyond Search, this benefit to our candidates means that NAL is a natural choice for our company.
