Global Graduate Induction

Broadsword Event House / HSBC


In July 2019, 860 Global Graduates from 18 countries representing over 40 nationalities, travelled to London to attend the fourth and largest HSBC Global Graduate Induction (GGI) event. Broadsword have been privileged to work alongside organisers for the past four years, since the event’s inception.

Over 3 days, the new graduate cohort built strong business and international networks, familiarised themselves with HSBC’s purpose, values, history and strategy, and deepened their risk awareness while developing their appreciation of how the organisation ‘grow and protect’ their customers and franchise.

Building on the successes of previous events, a new larger venue was contracted to accommodate an increased number of graduates, 60 hosts for the HSBC World EXPO booths and 90+ Leaders as Teachers Alumni and Graduate Alumni trained as Micro Group Facilitators. A third day was introduced to focus on key development themes of curiosity, communication, collaboration, resilience and personal brand.

Broadsword developed an interactive and dynamic event, transforming ExCel London into a main conference plenary, exhibition space, break out rooms, networking areas and installed an outdoor marquee for an evening event with a youthful feel.

The event was a huge success, creating excitement and empowering each individual to understand the scale of HSBC, yet create an individual connection to the organisation. Graduates felt valued; they left feeling inspired and were equipped with a range of development skills as they stepped into their careers at HSBC.
