Are you goal-oriented, and do you have the skills to arrange and achieve things? Do you stay ahead of the curve and take in the latest trends of innovative event formats?

You are an arranger of the components of the Summit, and you work together with the team to make it happen: location arrangements, people management, marketing & communications, and content.


We offer you an interesting internship, in which you can build your experience in a variety of project, stakeholder, and event management skills, as well as on your knowledge about Accenture’s business and approach towards Innovation, with the support of a strong global marketing organization and the Events Team.
