From Case Competitors to Visionary Leaders of Tomorrow

  • Copenhagen Business School, SPs05 3 Solbjerg Plads Frederiksberg, 2000 Denmark (map)

Join us for an intimate session in collaboration with Talentguiden and three of the brightest participants from CBS Case Competition in the history.

Two of them are travelling all the way from New York and London to join us, and therefore this is your unique chance to get inspired by their amazing paths to where they are today.

They have one thing in common: CBS Case Competition. They have all participated in CCC and from this, they gained some key competences, which they have been able to benefit from throughout their career. At this session, they will share some of these key competences and their key learnings on their way to success.

We are proud to introduce you to our three speakers:
