Part of a six strong Irish student delegation, Ted, who studies Economics at Trinity College Dublin, joined 70 delegates at the annual Deloitte Forum.

The ISBF is an annual career and leadership development programme for top students from around the world. This year’s ISBF participants were selected from more than 4,500 applications.

ISBF gathers high-potential students who are one to two years away from graduating to work in cross-cultural teams, under the guidance of Deloitte member firm professionals, on realistic business challenges in order to hone critical professional skills including: cross-cultural teamwork, effective communication, leadership, and building and maintaining global networks.

“Deloitte Ireland is delighted to be able to provide some of Ireland’s top university talent with a unique global learning and networking opportunity designed to help them succeed in their future careers,” said Orla Graham, Head of HR, Deloitte Ireland.

“At a time when students are entering the business world at the tail end of a massive economic downturn, ISBF provides these high-performing students with an experience that will help them take the first step in their journey toward becoming the next generation of global leaders. ISBF is an excellent opportunity to showcase talented Irish students on a global scale and for the students to gain invaluable business experience,” concluded Ms Graham.
