More Information

If you are in your final or penultimate year of study and wish to be considered for our 4-day unique strategy event in London, as well as a graduate or internship position with OC&C please apply here.

Join us at our 4-day International Strategy Workshop – staged this year in central London. You will work on a strategy project for a real OC&C client, as part of an international team of outstanding students. To do that, you will attend a kick off meeting with the client and we will train you on some key consulting concepts and then over the 4 days a team of OC&C consultants will use their knowledge and experience to guide you and your team, before you present your recommendations to the client on the final day.

But don’t worry: it is not all work! There will also be plenty of opportunities to relax and have fun in the great city of London.

The Case

Our client is the UK’s largest indoor go-karting track operator, running 34 high-quality locations around the UK featuring multi-level tracks, banked corners, ramps and high-speed straights. OC&C supported them as they were acquired by a major Private Equity fund. The business has seen considerable growth, in-part due to continued rollout of new locations (both organically and via acquisition) as well as activities to improve the facilities and increase capacity at existing tracks.

Like many businesses which sell time slots (hotels, cinemas, cruise ships) our client is fully booked during peak periods of the week and year, but has other times when it is harder to generate demand. Generating more demand at off-peak is a big opportunity for the business, and our client is keen to understand what they should be doing to bring more customers in during quieter periods. Karting is also a relatively low frequency activity with customers typically coming only once every couple of years. Management are keen to explore ways to encourage more frequent visits.

You and your fellow team members will be expected to come up with recommendations that could be used by the management of the business as they move through this current phase of ownership. Supported by OC&C consultants, you will carry out analyses and market research and then present your findings and recommendations to our client’s management team.
