It's almost time for the Place in Europe Competition - an annual event that has been sponsored by us here at MTT for the last 3 years and one which has given us a lot of pleasure and surprises.
In brief, teams of Year 9 students are challenged to give a presentation using slides, props and other materials on how they would relocate a family from the UK to a country of their choice.
The twist in the tail is that the presentation must be given in the language of that country. So, not only do they have to stand in front of an audience of parents, teachers, judges and local dignitories, but they must present clearly and correctly in a foreign language.
These types of skills are precisely what our next generation of business leaders will need and it's fabulous to see how good these young students are. Not only do they work well as a team and give excellent presentations, but they present business cards and leaflets in the language and come and talk to the judges to introduce themselves beforehand.
It's an excellent evening and one which we look forward to each year. If you're nearby make sure you catch it!
