Our professional events largely focus on personal development seminars and networking. These provide students with opportunities to foster relationships and broaden their knowledge about careers in accounting and finance.
Grant Thornton Networking Night
11 March 2020
On Wednesday March 11th, BAP members joined representatives from Grant Thornton for their 'Get to Know the Business' Night!
We met with a number of representatives from audit through to consulting, and heard about what to expect through pursuing a career at GT.
It was a privelege to visit the Melbourne office, and we thank GT for hosting us!
27 February 2020
Continuing our Orientation Week events, BAP members had the privilege of attending a student workshop hosted by KPMG!
While enjoying sky-high views, members were informed and provided a detailed overview of working at KPMG, their student programs and a mock assessment centre case study - all in time for the KPMG Career Launchpad in the following weeks! Students also had the opportunity to ask any questions in regards to the application and recruitment process.
Following this was held a networking session with various representatives from all the different service lines: Audit & Assurance, Tax & Deals.
An overall wonderful and insightful event - thank you to KPMG for having us!
RACE Orientation Day
24 February 2020
2020 started with a bang for our members with the RACE orientation day marking our first professional event of the year!
The day began with a presentation by PwC on the fundamentals of effective teams, presented by former Paralympian, Mitch Gourley, who offered us fantastic insights into implementing a framework to enhance the effectiveness of teams.
Following this, our members put their newfound knowledge into practice by participating in an escape room! This was an innovative and exciting way to test the effective team framework and the challenge was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The conclusion of the day involved a discussion of our performance in the escape rooms, allowing members to gain insights into the strengths and weaknesses of their individual and team performance and determine what teamwork aspects they would like to improve upon in the future.
