Employer Brand and Early Careers Specialist - Diageo, Budapest

I joined Diageo in 2018 and I am part of the Talent Engagement team to support the early careers, graduate program, and focus on our Employer Brand. This is the second year for being a co-organizer of BESPIRITED business game. Why is it good to try out yourself in this game? It is a great opportunity to kick-off your career, discover different parts of a huge company as we created this game based on real-life examples. You will also see some insights into our daily lives, so you can feel how Diageo operates. I hope you will enjoy the adventure and later we can meet personally! Good luck!

Talent Engagement Head - DBSI

I joined Diageo 3 years ago as the head of Talent Engagement for our DBSI offices in Bangalore and Manila.  When I heard about BESPIRITED organised by our Budapest team and the buzz it created, I was really excited and wanted to bring it to Bangalore to the larger candidate base here; students are always excited over innovative exercises and the challenges that it brings along. I am sure you are excited as well and would love to participate and enjoy the game. This is the first time we are bringing the game to Bangalore and it’s a great opportunity for you to discover our Bangalore office and the insights of work we do in here. Wishing you all the best and look forward to meeting you in our DBSI office soon.

Creating an online adventure with various missions is almost as great than fulfilling it, the only thing I regret that I cannot participate. This is the 5th DIAGEO BESPIRITED competition I contribute to and I hope that both the returning and the new participants will find it interesting and enjoyable. Make the best of this challenge, grow and develop yourself with us and the experience will be memorable!

Looking back on the past years and seeing what adventures await you this year, I don’t think neither the returning nor the new participants will have any complaints, at least we’ll do our best! ;)
