Things have moved at a brisk pace since our last update. We now stand on the precipice, the night before the case competition itself begins and we are locked away for 48 hours to create our business strategy. However, that is not to say the last few days have passed without note!

In the space of less than 48 hours we have toured corporate offices belonging to Boeing, Starbucks, JP Morgan Chase and F5 Network, spoken to top executives, and in one case, got free coffee beans. We were given the opportunity to share presentation and case solving skills with students studying business and finance at local high schools, while receiving lectures from the international trading body of Washington state. The world of American business is complex and undergoing massive changes,

Of course, there have been much lighter sides to our adventures. The last two days have been spent hanging out with business students around the globe, touring Seattle and the Washington University campus - highlights include the incredible Gothic styled Suzzalo library on-campus, the Space Needle and the Pike Place Markets, home to the original Starbucks. This was alongside team bowling and comedic performances, where we are proud to say the university of Sydney acquitted itself with gusto!

But now the time has come for war. With the case competition upon us tomorrow morning, the battle lines are being drawn. Teams have ceased the mingling with each other, and begun warily sizing each other up over the table tops at the local Chipotle, while others run back and forth outside the university, scrambling to buy out local supplies of giant post-it notes and highlighters. We have been shoring up our hotel room, shifting beds into desks and drawing up problem solving processes and frameworks in anticipation of tomorrows case.

Are we ready? more than ever. Are we scared? Never!
