In the workshop, we will cover the fundamentals of case cracking. This will be a hands on session with experienced coaches who will be able to assist you with any questions, and give you the advice that you need to succeed in the competitions.

For more experienced competitors who wish to brush up on their skills before the competition, practice cases will be run. These cases will be run in a similar format to the actual competition, however in a more relaxed setting. Our experienced judges will provide immediate feedback after your presentation.

All competitors are encouraged to visit the resources section of our websit for in-depth tutorials on the different aspects of cracking a case.

Please see the resources section of our website for tutorial slides, presentation slides and videos from representative teams.

Practice cases will be available for your team to view prior to the competition. We will email when these are available to be collected. All practice cases must be returned before you can compete and there is a maximum of one case on per team available for loan at any time.
