Detailed Agenda:
1. The night will open with a brief presentation from our senior mentors on problem solving and client interviews
2. You will then be grouped with 4 other students and a mentor for the evening.
3. Session 1: Each group will be provided with information on a problem our mock client is facing - you will use this to develop a project charter with the help of your mentor
4. Session 2: You will then take this project charter into a mock client interview - attempting to extract as much information as possible from your client, to help guide your problem solving
5. Session 3: Work with your group and mentor to break down the client’s problem, producing an issue tree and synthesising your findings to a preliminary solution.
6. This will be followed by an opportunity to have a drink and chat with the mentors in an informal setting.
