"What really distinguishes the extraordinary consultants from the good ones is their ability to reconceptualize the challenges in hand, while inspiring others with their thirst for excellence."

What I do

As a management consultant, I work closely with our clients to support them solve their problems and improve the way of doing things across different functional areas. The most fascinating part of this job is that we need to introduce fresh ideas, radical innovations and emerging technologies in order to help our clients grow and become more competitive.

A day in my life

My role is mostly related to Telecom operators, which I find exciting due to the fast-paced nature of the industry. I recently participated in a project in which we were required to address the chronic challenges of an incumbent operator, define the vision for the future organization and kick-start its transformation. Due to the pivotal role of this project in the company’s strategy, it was thrilling to work so closely with the client’s senior leadership through daily meetings and workshops. With a truly diverse team spanning across Consulting, Strategy and Technology practices, and people of six different nationalities, we demonstrated the required agility and introduced significant improvements and changes in a short period of time. Looking back to this experience, the most rewarding aspect was the client’s feedback and the recognition of our contribution!

The most appealing part of working at Accenture is that no two days are the same. One day you are working with the project team to build upon Accenture’s methodologies and tailor a solution to the client’s needs. The next day you are visiting the client’s site, conducting interviews, coordinating design-thinking workshops or presenting international case studies. And other times, you are attending conferences and seminars to learn about the latest innovations from industry experts. This dynamic environment makes me feel energized and engaged, as there are always new things to learn and try.

Five years after joining Accenture, I am still amazed by the people I get to work with. Accenture is home to some of the brightest minds and passionate people I have met. It is a pleasure being part of such an inclusive environment, where everyone is invested in each other’s success and is always ready to go the extra mile.

In my spare time, as an avid music lover and a DJ, you can find me constantly listening to new albums and artists, either practicing my mixing skills or buying new records for my collection. I also make sure that I play beach volleyball at least once a week. There is something magical about exercising in the sand that helps me unwind my mind and feel like a child again.

My advice

Be curious and get ready to make sound decisions. What really distinguishes the extraordinary consultants from the good ones is their ability to reconceptualize the challenges in hand, while inspiring others with their thirst for excellence.
