Pass It On: an Introduction to the Committee

The digital format has definitely changed the way the organising committee works. Communication, trust and dependency are key points in all teams, but they are inevitably crucial when you throw zoom-calls into the mix. It is not always easy, especially when you do not get to meet the people you work parallel with. Nonetheless, the admiration for each other and the appreciation of everyone's work does not go unnoticed. We have therefore done a round of "pass it on" to get to know each other and spread some compliments. Welcome to the ACC Organising Committee 2021!

Age, what you study and your role in the committee:


25 years old, Cand. IT - 10th semester, IT & Digitalisation


What you enjoy most in the ACC committee? A great memory?


Engaging with like-minded students in creating an extraordinary event, contributing to the legacy of Aarhus Case Competition. Seeing our premium partners and colleagues thrive in using our chosen virtual platform for the first time. Such a relief for my team and I to finally see all of our hard work come into play!


The biggest challenge so far? And something you will take with you?


Rethinking how ACC can transform into a virtual format while still remaining true to its identity and purpose. Ambitions and hard work can move mountains. Not even a pandemic can change that.


Pass it on to who and why?


Not only does Morten have great hair. He also ensured that the whole committee is well-dressed and nice looking. An accomplishment in itself! He recruits top-tier judges as easily as picking his nose. Well done Head of BR!



Morten Agnholt Andersen


Age, what you study and your role in the committee:


25 years old, Cand.merc.IT - 8th semester, Head of Business Relations


What you enjoy most in the ACC committee? A great memory?


Getting to work with my bright fellow students who can challenge my perception of the tasks in front of us. The few times we got to see each other physically and to see my fellow BR-members go above and beyond for our premium partners in a time of great uncertainty


The biggest challenge so far? And something you will take with you?


The ever-changing nature of this year's ACC, which due to COVID-19 has required lots of iterative thinking and has turned many processes upside down. You can only plan for so much in a project. In the end, what you are evaluted on, is your ability to cope and deal with the unexpected.


Pass it on to who and why?


Mathias has been a precious gift to the BR team with his engagement and positive attitude. He is always ready to help out and has a strong "can do" attitude which I have valued highly.

24 years old, BSc. Erhvervsøkonomi, Business Relations


What you enjoy most in the ACC committee? A great memory?


Meet some new and inspiring students, and get them to learn. They are all very dedicated, to run this cool event, in the best possible way. Furthermore I really enjoy meeting some interesting people beside the ACC committee. To me, our Kickoff event was a great memory. It gave us the opportunity to make a cool outside event, and show the city that ACC is ready to receive the students in week 15.


The biggest challenge so far? And something you will take with you?


The biggest challenge so far, has off course been to make the best possible event, with this pandemic running around the world. This means that you have to rethink the event, and make some new initiatives. All the new friendships is definitely something I will take with me. Furthermore, I think that I have learned a lot by working with the external partners.


Pass it on to who and why?


Mads (Studs) is a person with both feet on the ground. Every time I meet him, he is always ready for a small talk, and always with a smile.

What you enjoy most in the ACC committee? A great memory?


The people. It is always a pleasure to work and interact with such a great team, where everyone shares the same vision, and is dedicated to create the best ACC-experience despite this year's extra challenges. I have a lot of great memories, but my greatest memory is definitely the cabin trip. It was such a fun weekend, where we got to meet everyone from the committee, and I could not imagine this year being the same without it.


The biggest challenge so far? And something you will take with you?


One of the best things about being part of the ACC committee is the social experiences and new friendships. Unfortunately, due to the current situation with COVID, the social interaction has been severely limited. During my ACC tenure, I have often had to leave my comfort zone. This has helped me to become much more comfortable in professional settings, and it has definitely improved my skillset.


Pass it on to who and why?


Anna always has a smile on her face, and it is always fun to be around her. She also makes for a great partner in beer pong, although mostly for mental support - she will not hit a cup!
