Balázs Iszak
Martin Matras
Hi, my name is Martin and I’m a first year PPE student running for Head of Case Competitions. I believe I’m a perfect candidate for several reasons. First, I’ve participated in both McKinsey Solve It and BCG Strategy Cup competitions, so I know what these competitions look like and I’ll do my best to organise similar events. Second, during my high school studies, I started and led an organisation representing more than 23 000 students. The organisation served in a position of official advisory to the Prague City Council and established close ties with other student-led societies. I also have experience with organising events for hundreds of participants, which should help me to ensure that everything runs smoothly in the case study competitions.
Serving as the president of the organisation enabled me to develop my communication and leadership skills, both of which are essential for the role I’m applying for. As a Head of Case Competitions, I hope to organise events not only limited to the UCL Consulting Society, but to collaborate with other universities and societies. Last but not least, I’m a very communicative and talkative person. I genuinely enjoy meeting new people and I’m easily approachable, which I’m sure will mitigate some of the tension connected to participating in case study competitions. While I’d be ready to make use of the online environment, I can’t wait to organise in-person events and see you all on campus.

As an economics student, I have thoroughly enjoyed the activities held at the Consulting Society such as the career talks and case study workshops. My intention to be the Head of Case Competitions stems from my past experiences and the alignment between my skill set and the requirements of the role. I have developed my organisational skills through a start-up competition that involved starting a virtual company selling board games and a case competition where I led a team to research the effects of rent control on the property market of Hong Kong. Serving as the chairman of my high school’s economics society and advising on a digital transformation during my internship at an exporter enhanced my communication skills and responsibility.

I guarantee:

- Questionnaires for participants to match them with like-minded individuals if they prefer not to form a team themselves for the competitions.

- More partnerships and better prizes (internships, prize money, etc) by increased collaboration with the External Relations & Events team.

- Pre-competition socials to network with judges and other university students, facilitating the exchange of ideas.

- Improved fairness by providing first-year participants with training sessions on research methodology (delivered in small groups by previous winners).

- Increased engagement by allowing members to submit topic suggestions prior to the competitions.
