Santiago Iñiguez, Dean of Instituto de Empresa, opened the event and welcomed the distinguished speakers: Ricardo Damborenea, Senior Partner at Bain & Company, Lorenzo Milans Del Bosch, Director of Oliver Wyman and Luis Ceniga, Lead for SPAI at Accenture. Professor Manuel Becerra, the IE Accenture Chair, introduced and moderated the panel discussion.


This year’s theme at the discussion panel was «Strategies for sustainable growth in the era of globalization», which is one of the hottest topics in the industry nowadays – for both entrepreneurs and multinational companies. The discussion included both models drawn from professional consulting best-practices and real-life cases.
The theme encouraged an active debate between the students and speakers, which was indeed insightful and stimulating.
The workshops session started after a 30 minute coffee-break that was kindly sponsored by the invited firms. Students had the opportunity to discuss the specific cases presented by each firm’s manager, as well as network with the invited guests.


Eduardo Avendano and Javier Roa, of Accenture, conducted the workshop «Geographic expansion in Financial Services: How to suceed».


Diego Gigliani, manager at Oliver Wyman lead the workshop entitled «How to grow profitably in a nearly-monopolistic market environment».


The third workshop was handled by Nicolás López, of Bain & Company, and students were called to discuss issues of «Strategic consultancy in the private equity sector: learn to think like them».


This event was organized by Mathieu Frison, Pedro Trinite, Cesare Valenti, Alessio Rugeri, Oksana Avdeeva and Eduardo Martinez, all IE 2007 students, with the support and help of the Careers Management Centre. The event was sponsored by participating consulting firms.
The C-Club team thanks all IE students that gave feedback on the 4th edition of the C-Day.
Key learning of the event:
Sustainable growth is a valuable outcome that follows the implementation of an effective, and unique strategy. All speakers gave precious insights on how the consulting industry can offer companies to manage this process effectively and efficiently. Today’s clients are becoming more sophisticated and are demanding a real transfer of skills and know-how, instead of the classical one-off engagement. Strategy consulting firms are responding to this need by offering more sophisticated and integrated solutions. Different strategies in this regard were illustrated by the speakers. And while short term results are always important, the primary focus is the long term relationship aimed to provide clients’ shareholders outstanding returns on their investments. Some topics discussed were: diversification, business process analysis, competitive advantages, organic and buy-out growth strategies, and many others.
