Stargazers Consulting X CUHK MiM Capstone Project Training
How do we create a Presentation that rocks? What is the difference between presentations for Case Competitions or Real Corporate Clients? We are glad to have conducted a 3-hour workshop for all MiM students to better prepare for their Capstone Project. It can be intriguing, exciting and nerve-wrecking to deliver a professional presentation to a real client who is looking for real solutions to implement after the presentation.
In our 3-hour intensive training we covered topics from: General Presentation, Storyline Building, Script Writing, Team Effectiveness during Zoom Presentation, Individual Presentation Tips and Techniques for Q&A. It is very often for speakers to share their previous experiences and knowledge during workshops. Rarely do we see a preview of the scripts written, a complex-analysis to presentation materials to slides designed or psychological reasoning or intention when presenting certain parts.
The training was tailored and personalised to prepare all 60+ MiM Students for their Capstone Project Presentation. We wish all 10 teams the best of luck with your capstone corporate project and create the positive impact on the 5 functional areas for your client partner.
Last but not the least, Stargazers wishes all MiM students a great start to a new chapter of their lives as their fruitful journey is coming to an end. You all have grown tremendously from our pre-programme engagement and training!
Stargazers Consulting X Keio Business Club, Keio University
We are glad to mark a new beginning with Keio Business Club, Keio University. The 1.5 hour workshop was conducted through zoom on the topic ‘Strategy’. Our trainer Sonam Wangchuk covered all essentials from strategy in academic studies, for consulting projects and in case competitions.
Some of the themes covered include:
1. From Analysis to Strategy
2. Defining Problems to Formulating Strategies
3. Strategy through Slides
It is often very difficult to visualize or come up with new ideas and solutions without in-depth industry knowledge or functional experience.

The Strategy Workshop has provided the attendees an opportunity to solve complex problems with very limited time yet come up with logical and interesting ideas.
