Hey you there, dear student!
Are you graduating soon? Are you interested in strategic communication? Fancy working in a communications agency later? Fancy getting a taste of the life of a communications consultant for a day? Not afraid of a (little) bit of competition?
We invite you to come to the Strategic Communication Cup on Friday 29 March 2024: a day when we will dive into the wonderful world of strategic communication with students from different universities all over Belgium and work in a team on a real case – straight from practice.
Stimulate your creativity and deepen your strategic thinking. Who knows, you might even discover a hidden talent or a new passion… all in one day.
What can you expect from the Strategic Communication Cup?
We start the day at 9am with a crash course in the working methods of a communication agency and the models we work with at FINN. Then we present you with a concrete case: you get a realistic briefing from a real client.
We let that sink in briefly over a cup of coffee or tea and then divide you into teams. You go to work in that team on the strategic assignment – the game is on!
In the afternoon, we provide a delicious lunch that we can enjoy together, so that you can ask our office colleagues all your questions about agency life.
Part two of the Strategic Communication Cup: dot the i’s on your team’s strategy. We will be on hand to help you with this.
Time for the team presentation!
Communication and marketing professionals sit on the jury, which will determine the winning team, and they are real bigwigs in the business. Last year, the jury members were Master Marketer Paul Van Cotthem (ex-Telenet) and Linde Verheyden, Public Affairs Director at BNP Paribas Fortis, Stijn Ombelet (PR/PA Manager at Recupel) and Pauline Pierart (Campaign & Communication Manager at Partena Professional). When it comes to the jury members for the 2024 edition, we will keep them secret for now….
Hard work will be rewarded at the end of the day with post-work drinks, also known as FINNtjes!
Still not convinced? Then relive the previous edition in the aftermovie of the first edition, and you will undoubtedly want to be there this year too!
Taking part is easy: register by sending a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org introducing yourself before 22 March 2024.
⚠️ You do not have to register as a team – you can register individually.
Where and when will the event take place? Friday 29 March 2024 at 9am at Quai des Charbonnages 62, 1080 Brussels. We will close the Strategic Communication Cup at 5pm, after which there will be post-work drinks.
Will you be there this year? We are looking forward to it!
