Janice Danier, a Year 4 BEcon&Fin student, and fellow team members from other business schools, won their case category during the KPMG sponsored Team Case Competition at Beta Gamma Sigma’s Global Leadership Summit held in Chicago in late 2019. The team was selected as a winner based on their innovative solution for their assigned business case and the effectiveness of their presentation.
Also attending the event was Ji Ming Jung, a Year 4 BBA(Acc&Fin) student. During the 4-day summit, they both participated in specialised leadership trainings and team events hosted by BGS, and learned from the leaders in various fields of business and academia. They were also given many networking opportunities with recruiters from big companies and got the latest job market information firsthand.
Commenting on the summit, Janice said, “The sessions and speakers had definitely inspired me to develop my own passion, and develop skills outside of the classroom, that would help me differentiate from others and be a good leader in work environment. I also found having conversations with recruiters very useful in understanding more about the requirements that I might need for future enrollment.”
Ji Ming also found helping others to grow and to reveal their potentials at work is another approach of leadership that can drive business success, “I gained an idea of how I can further utilise one’s strengths, motivations and social styles for optimising results and the best work experience.”
The Beta Gamma Sigma’s annual Global Leadership Summit brings together nearly 400 BGS members to explore their talents while building relationships with fellow leaders from chapters around the world. During the Summit, attendees participate in a carefully cultivated series of leadership sessions designed to build upon each other to culminate in an intensive team competition.
