Pitch Perfect
The students started their day by meeting volunteers and learning about their hosts before touring the premises to get a better picture of what working there is like. Then they worked in teams to understand how banks can support businesses with their finances and started their challenge for the day. Their challenge was to secure a loan for a new business venture of their devising before running the initial set up of the business. The teams really had to demonstrate their Leadership and Presenting skills throughout the challenge, but especially at the end of the day when they presented their achievements back to a panel of volunteers.

We used our Leadership and Presenting skills today. They helped us reach decisions and get over our fears when sharing our ideas.

The day was really well structured and had a great pace. It was fun getting to know and helping the teams. They also asked me some pretty challenging questions about my job.
