My Roles and Responsibilities
I work in Deloitte's Technology Consulting practice, where I work with clients looking to build their Analytics, AI and Automation capabilities. I am responsible for leading client projects, managing a team of analytics professionals and providing expertise on data and analytics.
I have worked at Deloitte for over 4 years and prior to this I was at Accenture for 2 years, giving me a wealth of experience in consulting roles. I have worked on projects with clients in natural resources, telecommunications, retail, media, software and more; focused on bringing tangible business benefits from technology. Prior to this I attended Oxford University where I read Geography. Originally coming from a non-technical background I am always keen to involve and work with people from different academic disciplines, backgrounds and perspectives to better outputs.
Why am I on Connect?
In my experience the best mentors have been 'mentees' and mentors at different parts in their careers. Having been mentor and a mentee previously I have found the opportunity rewarding in both roles, and I'm particularly keen in utilising any technology that makes life easier.
Whom would I like to mentor?
Curiosity, patience and a willingness to try new things are three of the key things I look for. Patience, in particular, is often overlooked as we too rarely sit down to think about what we want, the best way of approaching it and how to be most effective.
