On May 13th & 14th 2015, PwC and Imperial College Business School got together with an ambitious goal: give a taste of what working in consulting actually means to a group of 30 soon-to-be professionals.
During the 2-day workshop, the MBA and MSc students, guided by PwC experts, worked in groups to find the right answers to a number of pressing questions. How to quickly assess the landscape of a client’s business? How to understand their needs and come up with actionable solutions? How to best present those solutions and related risks?
On the client side, SoAmpli. The first to present, we challenged students to map integration possibilities for the future of our Employee Advocacy platform.

PwC Strategy Consultant Michael Guzik commented: “We handpicked SoAmpli, Resolver and Rukea as three rising start-ups that could add value to students’ experience with consulting. During this intense two days of workshop, we had the pleasure of lending our expertise to a group of brilliant future professionals who worked really hard to provide actionable solutions to these three great tech businesses”.
Zaneta Motkowicz, Employer Relations Executive at Imperial College Business School, added: “We encourage all of our students to gain first-hand experience of what working in different sectors and roles actually means. Thanks to our wonderful Alumni, Michael Guzik and Damion Osi, currently working in strategy consulting at PwC, we were able to offer a selected group of students a unique opportunity to test their knowledge and practice their consulting skills in the close-to-real environment. In addition, the students got a glimpse of the exciting world of successful UK’s tech start-ups such as SoAmpli”.
