Our new Year 12 Student Leaders availed of an amazing opportunity recently and I shall hand over to David in Year 12 to say a few words about it:
On Monday, 19th April, five Student Leaders visited the British Chamber of Commerce in Hungary (BCCH) conference in the Eiffel Palace building. Having gathered in a room with representatives of high-profile companies and educational organisations, such as Google, Diageo Milestone Institute, we prepared ourselves for the upcoming presentations. The theme was “Same Boat-Different Generations”, which highlighted the different characteristics of various generations in the workforce and how to increase productivity and cooperation between generations on a commercial scale. Three different speakers, with years of experience in Human Resources, held captivating and informative presentations on the topic of collaboration between generations in the workplace. Afterwards, Guen (Head Girl) and Kang San (Head Boy), represented our generation, “Z”, in a roundtable discussion, answering questions and challenging the ideas of other participants from a young adult’s perspective. We plan to present the remarks and ideas of the professionals to our teachers in the coming weeks.
On behalf of the Student Leaders, I personally want to thank Ms Chudleigh and Adrienne Mallay-Chambers, Chief Executive Officer of Wilson Learning, for giving us the opportunity to take part in such a thrilling business conference.
We would also like to thank our wonderful students on behalf of our school and the organisers of the event following extremely complimentary feedback from the British Chamber of Commerce. Our students never cease to make us proud!
