Anna Geary was recently in the RDS to MC the AIB Build a Bank Challenge final which has been running since 2002.
The challenge sees a team of six students selected to set up and manage a bank in their school with the full support of a dedicated AIB Student Officer. The students get involved in everything from developing a Business Plan, branding their Bank and engaging with the community to sourcing new customers through creative marketing campaigns.
Day two in the RDS was the launch of the AIB Future Sparks Festival which aims to support and inspire second level students in choosing their career path.
Anna was very impressed with the level of energy and creativity among the young contenders.
