On Friday November 22nd, Bentley’s “Globetrotters” came into the KPMG Boston Office to practice a case to help prepare them for the semi-final round of competition. During their visit they were given 3 hours to review a case and prepare a presentation for a panel of Audit and Advisory Partners and Directors. After their presentation they were given professional feedback and tips for the next round of competition. The KPMG professionals shared their “board room” presentation experiences and recommended a book for The Globetrotters to read, “Say it with Charts” by Gene Zelazny. KPMG has sent each of the students a copy of the book so that they can prepare further over their upcoming winter break. We’ll see how the competition unfolds on January 17th…. stay tuned!
