What I Do

I joined Accenture’s Toronto office in July 2015, and have been working with a large technology-focused client based in Silicon Valley. Our team is helping manage the client’s new pricing transformation strategy from an end-to-end perspective, and I specifically oversee all operational activities involved.

Day in my Life

Not one day has been the same so far, which is an exciting part of my job.

My team is made up of people from across the globe, and I use our online collaboration tools to work seamlessly together. I normally use the time zone difference to my advantage, and catch up on e-mails from the evening before, make a list of what I need to get done for the week, and update any long-term timelines as necessary.

Once I meet with the project manager, I start providing any deliverables my client has requested, and ensuring our program is successfully running. This includes change management efforts, knowledge translation, and addressing ad hoc requests.

Outside the Office

I love to travel. I find it has been the best way for me to grow from a personal perspective and learn about other cultures on a deeper level. It is refreshing to take a break from my laptop and phone, and get in touch with the world around me. This past year, I travelled to 10 countries, and made a promise to travel to at least one new country every year.

My Advice

People are always willing to offer guidance at Accenture and share their experiences with you. It is important to surround yourself with individuals who believe in your potential, which is why networking is so important.

Also, look for opportunities to grow. Accenture invests in its employees, so if there is a skill you would like to learn or an industry you would like to be more knowledgeable in, do not hesitate to express your interest.
