A group of students from our BComm degrees attended an event at Deloitte on Friday Nov 29 and shared that it was an evening to remember!
The event “Todays’ Students, Tomorrow’s Leaders”, is a career preparation workshop presented by Deloitte. During the event, our students had the chance to connect with peers and Deloitte practitioners to:
- Discuss Personal branding
- Learn about The skills needed for the future of work
- Discover how to establish connections effectively
- Debate Topics such as leadership, service excellence
- Network with leaders and hiring managers
The students shared that the session started with an introduction to Deloitte and what they do, followed by a very motivational and inspirational presentation on what leadership is and what good leaders do. The topic of “Thought Leadership – What it Takes to Succeed in Today’s Industry” was introduced through a very interactive discussion panel.
During dinner, participants were able to network with each other and the members of Deloitte.
“What resonated throughout the event is that leadership is not about hierarchy, it is about having grit, empathy, building relationships, and taking initiatives.”Alexandra Belen, Digital Business Management Student
