A young management trainee in Boston had the honour of being invited to a finance summit hosted by Prince Charles last week.
Regan Moore, 22, of Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Boston, was one of a group of former students who triumphed in the 2014 UK final of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants CIMA) Global Business Challenge (GBC) in Mumbai, India.
Regan led his group to a victory and, as a result, he was invited to the Prince’s Accountancy for Sustainability Summit hosted by the Prince of Wales in London.
The summit brought together global leaders from the finance and accounting community to discuss how they can make business more sustainable.
“It was a wonderful experience to win the UK GBC title and to represent the UK at the global finals this year but we never dreamt it would lead to us being invited to such a high profile event as A4S,” said Regan, of Fishtoft.
“To be recognised as finance leaders of the future, and to meet the Prince was a true honour.”
The 2014 CIMA GBC is an international business management competition designed to showcase the very best in the next generation of business leaders. To reach the final, students were tasked with presenting innovative solutions to a business scenario based on a real-life case study.
David Rowsby, regional director, Europe at CIMA, said: “The Global Business Challenge provides an opportunity to showcase the business leaders of the future and it was a fantastic achievement for the team to win the UK final. CIMA congratulates our UK winners on their invitation to attend the prestigious A4S Summit and the recognition of their hard work.”
Regan graduated in 2014 with a Management Studies degree from the University of Leicester.
