27 Apr Training on Presentation Skills
The HSBC Business Case Competition was established in 2008. It is an undergraduate competition focusing on case studies in the field of management. It is sponsored by the Hong Kong University Asia Case Study Center (ACRC) and was jointly funded by HSBC and McKinsey. In 2013, HSBC became the sole sponsor of the event. The competition is dedicated to providing high-standard international exchange platforms for undergraduate students in the Asia Pacific Business School.
Adrian Xu from CLE, SUSTech was the presentation coach for the competition last year. He was invited again this year to provide presentation guidance directly for students from the Department of Finance who will participate in this competition in Guangzhou later this month. Having watched our demonstrations, he directed the four of us to improve one by one in terms of manuscript preparation, ways of delivering the speech, use of audiovisual aids, and points for attention in delivering the speech. Finally, Adrian suggested some practicing skills and tactics that could be used in the competition to build up our confidence.Thanks for his help, we finally reached the second round in the competition and achieved better results than the previous year.
