It is highly recommended that you attend tutorials and attempt at least one practice case prior to the competition. There will be three tutorials prior to the competition. Times, locations and subjects covered will be advised via email, if you are a registered member of MCC.

In addition to the tutorials, you may also pursue one of the following options:

  • Coaching: A coach can elaborate on the tutorial content, including the Auckland Model for approaching a case. A coach can also watch practice sessions and give helpful feedback. All coaches have completed the development programme.
  • Practice Case Days: Practice case days will be held in the week prior to the competition. The format is similar to the competition itself, except that it is more relaxed and there is more opportunity for feedback and discussion after you present. Practice Case Days cost $10 per team to cover photocopy expenses.

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.
