Carmen Lau, Yiannis Russell and Priyal Kapoor recently made it to the finals of the ICAEW BASE (Business and Accountancy Skills Education) competition at the Hilton Metropole hotel in Birmingham.
They were selected from over 400 schools and colleges to take part in the event which involved an overnight stay with food and entertainment over 2 days.
Initially the team from Greenhead competed online against 4000 other students getting through 2 tough rounds. Following this they submitted business advice via a video sent to the judges from the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW). Each time they took on the role of a chartered accountancy firm advising a client from the technology sector.
Head of Business, Mark Mitchell said:
‘They have gained invaluable experience which will help in their future careers.’
