Virtual insight day


BDO, one of the largest global accounting networks, wanted to promote and run a virtual insight day for 40+ pre-screened candidates to support them with their early careers hiring. The virtual insight days were aimed to give BDO the opportunity to pipeline top students and graduates while an in-person event wasn’t possible - so that they could continue finding the brightest and best-fit candidates for their graduate opportunities and promote their brand.


Here’s how we worked with BDO to support and run these virtual insight days: 

  • Set up a tech platform to run skills sessions, networking groups and a keynote speaker during a 2-hour insight day

  • Market the event to relevant members using our data insights engine

  • Screen and manage candidates to ensure the 55 person shortlist was ready and tech-enabled to join the insight day

Working with someone who had hosted virtual insight days before was invaluable… the work they did before the event meant candidates were engaged, with thoughtful inputs
