Aspect of SMSC
Reason for event
This is an excellent opportunity for students to be creative and work in teams with other students who they do not normally work with. Everyone in each team has a specific role so students have to find out and develop their own strengths, typical roles are, accounts manager, sales and marketing, design, environmental development and everyone in the team has to have a speaking part in the presentation.
