Perth, 2014 attendee
The highlight of my vacationer experience was getting broad client exposure. I could understand what my degree was actually contributing towards. University is great to learn theory, so when I visited clients, I could apply what I knew.
After watching last year’s IILC YouTube video on repeat, I thought I’d like to go, so I submitted an application. I want to develop my understanding of EY from an international perspective, and extend my way of thinking beyond the Perth office.
When I got the phone call that I’d been selected to attend, it was an adrenaline pumping feeling of accomplishment and excitement, like when you land from your first skydiving experience. How many people can say they get to be a kid again at Disneyworld for a business trip with their future employer?
It was amazing to see 3,000 people share the same values but who all think so differently!
The workshops that were really were useful for me, were the Advisory workshop which helped me to think more creatively and outside the box for alternate solutions. The leadership workshop taught me skills on how to work with teams to produce effect solutions given set constraints.
