"From an entry-level role to leading a high-performing team—read about Anne’s climb to the top."
Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb” is one of Anne Margaret’s favorite songs because “it isn’t just about what you achieve in life, but also about the experiences you go through to get to where you are.” The pop song is an apt soundtrack for this avid home cook’s professional journey at Accenture.
Anne joined the company in 2013 as a Community Operations Analyst, straight out of university. Through the years, she took every opportunity to upskill and beef up her knowledge on the latest technologies, as well as to learn from her mentors, peers and leads. She also fearlessly took on new challenges, responsibilities and special projects to quench her thirst for learning.
In just five years, Anne rose five levels to become a Business Transformation Specialist, responsible for helping clients develop strategic business insights to improve efficiency, revenue and processes.
“One of my biggest tasks is to drive a culture of innovation and continuous improvement,” she explains. “I am responsible for overseeing the operations team as they progress on their insights and innovation projects.”
One project that Anne enjoyed immensely was her team’s partnership with the Applied Intelligence group to work on an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled tool to automate trending news globally.
“Before, we used to track client-relevant news and trends manually. This often caused us to miss important data,” she says. “It wasn’t easy to aggregate the information we needed for our client. We took these manual processes to the next level through automation and AI. Now, we can track news faster and more accurately, and monitor trends in real time. This is key for us to provide smart recommendations to our clients.”
Anne is grateful that Accenture provides near-limitless opportunities to pursue her passion for innovation. Now armed with an arsenal of tech and leadership skills, this strong, inspiring woman knows there is no other way to go but up.
“Accenture allows you to grow and learn while being exposed to new technologies and business strategies. We work to deliver—we partner with organizations to shape the future and turn smart ideas into reality.”Learn more about the Innovators of Accenture Operations.
