Teams began preparing for the competition in April but it came time to buckle down in September when most teams started their 3 hour weekly training period with their coaches that could include lessons, case preparations and presentations.
This is Montana Kingsbury first year on the OCMC team as he is in his second year of the Advertising & Marketing Communications – Management program. Over the last three months he has worked alongside Jonathan Sharpe, a veteran to the competition. Being coached my Michelle Guile the team has had the opportunity to develop their presentation and critical thinking skills. When talking to Montana about the experience he says “My experience with O.C.M.C. has been amazing! It is a great way to put something interesting on your resume to make you stand out, I highly recommend participating.”
Good luck to the team this weekend at the 2016 O.C.M.C event! We are cheering you on! #BestinBlue
