Accenture Trip

First official blogpost of 2018, so let's get right into it...

Today( Or the 7th of March whenever you are reading this), a group of Tamaki College students and teachers headed into the city to attend a special workshop led by the Accenture team. 

At first, I  was shocked by how caring everyone were but also how different everyone was. I was also intrigued because of Timoti( an employee at Accenture) because he was currently busy in Australia because of a conference, and he took time out of his day to dial in and video call us. 

I was stunned because of the technology used. I felt like I was at home during the entire trip. Reason being that everyone (The Accenture team and TC group) were engaged in the activities and also conversations. We played two games (which had their own level of difficulty), Counter hack and Code combat (I focused on Code Combat which to me, was an interesting game).

The main hub we stayed in for most of the time was the Atutahi and the VR area( Where we experimented with new stuff) was the Mclaren room. The Staff introduced an Idea of IT and what careers can be benefitting towards you. 

Overall, I would like to thank Karl, Mark, Dimple, Sid, Blea, Emma and Dan for a wonderful time.
