Countdown to Young Banker 2023 Final
The challenge set this year is designed to test entrants’ ability to generate new ideas, drive innovation and deliver sustainable growth by developing a short proposal in response to the following question:
About the competition
In the first round of the competition, candidates are asked to submit their idea to be considered by a panel of judges drawn from the Chartered Banker Institute.
Applicants must be employed in a deposit-taking or lending institution, and have approximately less than 15 years’ experience in banking to apply
- Candidates have to outline their idea in a proposal of no more than 800 words
Judges from the Institute will review all proposals; the best candidates will then be invited to discuss their idea via Zoom with an Institute judge.
Following this process, eight entrants will be selected to present their idea at the internal semi-finals. Semi-finalists will be invited to present their proposals to a panel of judges. Each semi-finalist will have 8 minutes to present, followed by questions from the judges. Four finalists will then be selected from the two internal semi-finals to present their proposals at the live final in London at the end of the year.
Finalists will receive feedback on their semi-final presentation from our judges, and have the chance to develop their proposals further. The finalists will present their idea before an invited audience of senior bankers, regulators and others, towards the end of the year at Mansion House in London, with the winner chosen by an illustrious panel of judges.
There are many benefits to taking part in Young Banker of the Year. Candidates can improve on and learn new skills throughout the competition process, including:
- The opportunity to develop new and ground-breaking ideas in the banking industry
- Get valuable feedback from industry experts
- Raise their profile in their organisations and in the wider industry
- Hone their presentation skills
- Develop networking skills
