Around 400 delegates, holding executive and senior management positions in companies such as Santander, Unilever, Apple, PWC, Deloitte, Nestle, Bloomberg, British Telecom and KPMG, are expected to attend.

The students will play an active role at the meeting and be working as session hosts as well as having the opportunity to speak to and hear from industry leaders.

The lucky group, who were selected through a video competition, are; Ryan Casey (BBA International Business Management); Noé Cichy (BBA International Business Management); Kristen Freile (BBA International Business Management); Daniel Jaeck (BBA International Business Management);  Annika Kelsen (BBA International Business Management); Edward Meadowcroft (BBA Management); Pietro Piantanida (BBA Management);  Sammi Ruane (BBA Management); Bethan Thompson (Business Studies) and YuZhong Li (BSc Management and Information Technology).

When researching the topic Bethan Thompson said that she “admired how the WBCSD are helping companies to meet both economic and environmental needs, by setting specific, yet achievable goals for organisations”.
