Even though the situation was a peculiar combination of getting to know strangers you had never met before and reuniting with your friends you see and talk to on a weekly basis, it didn’t take longer than a few moments until we were sure – the coconuts (credits to our expert session with Dr. Ashis Brahma) of Team London and their colleagues from Team Seoul must have known each other for years. Hence vivid chatting accompanied the official start of our first day, which was shaped by a workshop on project management by Matthias Reiser and Jöran Albers of Bain & Company in their impressive Munich office. After a morning of input, we spent the afternoon applying our newly gained knowledge to two example cases and could exercise our presentation skills when convincing our managers (aka the two experienced consultants and most supportive workshop leaders from Bain & Company) of our solutions.
After a wrap-up, feedback and future commitment session, not two teams but one left Munich. Tired, exhausted and in strong need for recuperation, but filled with inspiration, motivation and exaltation, proud of being a coconut and eagerly looking forward to the next meet-up of Team be.boosted!
