A superbly well organised and enjoyable week with the other students on the Insight Week.
When carrying out the project part of the week we had help from various Danone employees and when presenting our SWAT analysis we had a Q&A from senior employees giving us valuable practice in a business environment.
The week was very well scheduled and I always felt we had a good level of guidance and support with the various aspects of the week.
Gained valuable presentation and group work skills which is something I hadn't experienced so much at University. These skills will also be important in my upcoming placement year.
Very well structured consisting of talks from all different Danone departments a 24 hour group SWAT analysis project with time at the end of the week for individual feedback.
Everyone was very friendly and welcoming and always willing to give us a hand with our projects and presentations.
Before starting the week we filled out personality questionnaires and using these Danone provided us with a detailed analysis of our work place personality and work style which has helped hugely and will continue to help my personal development in the future.
Talking to recent graduates at Danone gave great insight into working for the company.
Through the presentations by different departments the company culture was always discussed and it is clearly very important to everyone at Danone.
Very useful as it lead to me applying for and securing a year-long finance placement with Danone.
Reimbursed for travel and food expenditure as well as staying in a nice hotel near the office paid for by Danone.
Yes plenty of interaction and networking with employees.
No formal events were organised but during the week we were always talking to employees and gaining advice from them.
Yes we had a presentation all about Danone's charity links and projects outside of their normal day to day work.
Definitely a great opportunity for anyone interested in a potential career in FMCG or retail.
