Global Student Challenge Winners 2016 Glasgow Caledonian
One of the questions we’ve been asking since last year is whether Glasgow Caledonian University could make it a second year in a row.
Turns out they could.
Cali Construction have been crowned Global Student Challenge Champions 2016. Throughout the final, they consistently maintained their position at the top of the group, whilst the other teams were constantly moving up and down.
The team were awarded their prize at the Presidents’ Inaugural Dinner, held at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, by CIOB President Paul Nash. They will also receive £2000 in prize money along with access to mentoring from industry leaders who will offer advice and guidance with their professional development.
Cali Construction team member Peter McElroy said, “Winning topped off what was a fantastic event. Everyone involved was part of something very special. Our team had a real blend of personalities, but with a common purpose. The clear strategy, listening and compromising gave us our best results.”
Bond Agents from Bond University finished in 2nd place, an impressive feat for the University which is in the final for the first time.
Peter Tegg, team leader for Bond Agents, said: “I never anticipated that my time at University could include the opportunity of representing and competing in the CIOB / Merit Game. CIOB has provided me with perhaps one of my greatest team academic achievements and an experience that I will carry with those members forever.”
Congratulations to all of our finalist teams, and we hope they managed to make contacts for life whilst attending Members’ Forum events.
Registrations for Global Student Challenge 2017 will open in October 2016, and trialling will commence in the New Year.
