Along with students from UTS, University of Melbourne, Monash, Deakin, University of Auckland and Waikato University, the University of Sydney team attended the Beta Alpha Psi Oceania Regional Meeting themed "Inspiring Future Leaders to Leave a Legacy of Excellence," hosted by Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
Presenting in the Best Practice competition with the metaphor of planting a tree that gives shade to future generations, the USYD Chapter, represented by Jeff Brown and Sachin Samarawickrama, placed second in the category of "Branches" while Alex Zhao and Lily Zheng placed 3rd in the category "Roots." USYD finished as the 2nd ranked University amongst the Oceania chapters.
"I was extremely proud of the team," said Janine Coupe, USYD Faculty Advisor.

With a keynote presentation from Andrew van Dinter, EY Global Mining and Metals Tax Leader, and professional development activities provided by Tiago Devesa and Matt Gaffney, the team gained deep insights that they plan to implement and share with the USYD community at events.
USYD Beta Alpha Psi also held a Design Thinking Workshop with IBM at the start of April. In late March, members took part in the Diversity & Inclusiveness Conference, sponsored by EY, with a panel of practitioners and academics sharing their experience.
