Impressed with BITE
BITE was entrusted by HSBC Indonesia to hold this event thanks to a recommendation from one of the partners, Prestasi Junior Indonesia (PJI) due to their success in organizing SIMBIZ 2015, last January. “They were impressed with the organization of SIMBIZ. From there they asked us to organize this event,” said Richie Wijaya, the President of BITE and the project leader of the event.
Richie explained that his team prepared very carefully, in accordance with the working pattern in their organization. It took 2 months for the team to prepare. The preparations included doing research of the candidates’ universities, selecting them, and meeting the needs of the participants. “We conducted thorough research on capable and outstanding universities in order to ensure the integrity of the event,” Richie said.
The hard work of BITE team paid off and the competition was deemed a success. All of the parties involved in the event complimented Richie and his colleagues for their professionalism.
