CDP - Case Cracking


Date:  Sept 21,  2018
Venue: 8-210, 8/F, Lau Ming Wai Academic Building
Title:  CDP - Case Cracking
Speaker: Mr Andrew McGregor

Many employers use scenarios or cases in interview to simulate the work context or allow you to demonstrate your skills. These exercises can reveal a lot about you. With over 25 years of hands-on experience in recruitment, training and development, and consulting in the FMCG industry, Andrew McGregor prepared a negotiation simulation where students were divided into groups to agree on  strategies fighting resources for their own tribe, each student was then being sent to other tribe trying to negotiate how they can divide the island. A debriefing session was provided at the end highlighting the negotiation tactics; what an assessor may look for; what assessor may ask; and what could have been done to perform better during the interview. Students enjoyed a whole lot especially during the discussion/negotiation.
