Globe Business College Munich Golden Ticket Weekend
Twenty Grade 11 & 12 students participated in the Golden Ticket Weekend, where they worked on an exciting business project over two days. This strategic workshop initiative by Globe Business College Munich is designed to bring schools, companies, and colleges together to develop skills and character in young people. The event took place here at ISF on Saturday, the 10th, and on Sunday, the 11th of December, and was sponsored by the Roma KG.
On Saturday, Dr. Susan Walsh, Dean of Globe Business College, and Irish actor Packy Lee challenged our students to step out of their comfort zone and supported them in developing presentation and collaboration skills while working on their group projects and preparing their final presentations.
On Sunday, the four student teams gave their presentations in front of an audience of families and friends. Judges for the presentations were Dr. Vincent Docherty from Globe College, and ISF and Globe College graduates Steffen (ISF 2014) and Shivaansh (ISF 2018).
All four teams did an excellent job in their presentations, but only one team could be selected as the overall winner: Team 4 was selected by unanimous decision!
While business was the overall context, the weekend was really about character and skill development, with the focus being on the five skills of communication: empathetic exchange, bigger-picture thinking, grit/passion, and time management, as well as gaining an understanding of what is required in the real business world in terms of mindset.
I thank the participating students for taking this opportunity and for accepting the challenge, Globe Business College Munich for being such great partners and for offering our students this unique opportunity, the parents for coming to school on a Sunday to support their students during the presentations, and, of course, Steffen and Shivaansh for returning to ISF to support our current Grade 11 & 12 students!
I am certain that all participants will benefit from this experience for a long time. We will share more information about the workshop weekend once it is published by Globe College.
