Get to know EY's Strategy and Transactions
29 March 2021
On Monday 29th of March, our members had the privilege of attending our first in-person professional event hosted by EY Melbourne, Australia! While enjoying sky-high views, Daniel Goodman and the EY panelists gave a broad overview of their Strategy and Transaction (SaT) practice as well as the EY recruitment process.
Dave, Abbey, Fiona and Nick from the Transaction Diligence (TD) team provided us with a detailed overview of the role that TD plays in the merger and acquisition of firms and the granularity of their area of practice. Abbey, a Senior Consultant, walked us through notable M&A transactions that EY had worked on while Fiona, the Associate Partner, informed us of the importance of data visualisation tools in TD. Sam Nichol, a Debt Advisory Consultant, and Tracey Lam, a Transaction Strategy and Executive Consultant were also kind enough to introduce us to the types of work that the Capital & Debt Advisory team and Transaction Strategy & Executive team deals with respectively. Our members were also pleased to learn the importance that EY places in the development of its employees through the provision of internal upskilling programs.
Following this, our members had the opportunity to engage in a Q&A and networking session that allowed them to speak with the panelist and other members of SaT.
An overall wonderful and insightful event - a big thank you to Daniel Goodman for organising this event and to Dave Lomax, Fiona Hutchings, Abbey Griffin, Tracey Lam, Sam Nichol, Nick Mulhall and Rivi Prathapasinghe for sharing your insight with Beta Alpha Psi at Monash University. We look forward to future collaborations with EY!
