Past Event

A Meet & Greet session with recruiters and managers from KPMG’s Financial Risk Management (“FRM”) Advisory Group took place on the 14th of May 2015 from 6pm to 7:30pm. We approached the Advisory Risk Consulting Practice through one of our member and they expressed a keen interest in spending time to get to know some of our talents and explore possible opportunities for hiring to fill junior to senior level roles.  The Risk Consulting Practice included areas as: Regulatory Transformation, Capital Management, Risk Technology, Commodities & Energy Risk Management, and Asset Management.

We guaranteed access to this session will be granted to our top 10 most suitable subscribers. It was highly impactful in terms of building our network and we shared meaningful insights and opportunities in the financial risk consulting space.  

FEEDBACK

I gained a lot more knowledgeabout the financial risk management industry and thought the speakers you brought gave great insight into what an average day in their professions’ looks like and that they answered all scenario based questions clearly and intuitively, which I appreciated. This event encouraged me to continue to pursue my interest in the risk management arena and I will definitely be looking into any opportunities at KPMG as last night truly showed that they embrace their culture of diversity and support their employees in their endeavors outside of their demanding work lives, which is a culture I’d surely love to be a part of

The event at KPMG was great. I liked that there were people from multiple areas with varied levels of experience at the firm. They seemed very down to earth and approachable. The presence of HR representative was very good in terms of sharing more about the culture at KPMG and the career opportunities one can have at the firm. I hope to be a part of future events.

I would like to congratulate both the KPMG and the Manyatta teams for making this event possible. Thank you all for providing us, the ten lucky ones, with great and valuable insights about what it is like to be part of the KPMG’s family.

The Manyatta top 10 has provided me with the opportunity to be part of something big and inspiring. I went to the event with a certain point of view, with my ideas about what KPMG’s business model and vision was about. I then came out with the right perspective on those two points.

One thing that I have learned from my past experiences is that in Life Success comes down to having the right perspective and setting your Mind right. Thank you all for adding a stone in the building of my being, for showing me the way to go.

Thanks to the Manyatta Top 10 event at KPMG, I am on the right track knowing the area that I need to improve. I have also realized what I am doing well and how good I can be in the future provided that I put myself to work.

Thank you for the inspiring experience!

I cannot leave you without saying a word on my fellow Manyatta Top 10 candidates: You are all unique and it has been a pleasure for me to share this experience with you. Go and be great as you already are..”

“It was a high-point for me to learn that KPMG teaches and promotes entrepreneurial skills among its employees. This skills is required for someone who aspires to be a successful business leader. Having run two businesses – one successful and one failed – in the past, I believe that entrepreneurial skills is very crucial to my long term aspirations and goals. It was very surprising and attractive to know that KPMG does not only emphasize on technical knowledge/skills but also entrepreneurial and leadership skills”

I am really happy that you had invited me!  They were a very inspiring group of people.  Clearly, they had accomplished a lot even though they are early in their careers.  Despite their excellent credentials, they were very polite and gracious.  I am glad that the HR staff was there because they were all strong potential candidates.  I thought you had done an excellent job of organizing it because it allowed them to get a good insight into what KPMG is about.  It also helps us to know, in general, what is top of mind for good candidates. I truly hope some of the group choose to come on board.  Thank you again“.
