Ready. Get set. Goals!
June 30, 2021
Hi, I’m Jo Lynn, a digital business integration manager at Accenture. I joined the Interactive practice as an experienced analyst with a background in content management systems implementation. Throughout my four years in the company, I’ve had the opportunity to explore a wide spectrum of marketing technology stack, including data analytics, advertising technology (adtech), personalization and marketing campaigns.
My role allows me to wear multiple hats every day. At times, I provide technical solutioning for the implementation of a client’s technology stack. Other times, I run and deliver digital marketing projects end to end, from design to build and development. Essentially, my job requires me to be flexible and prepared for whatever comes my way.
At Accenture Interactive, people are given the opportunity to grow into any role they want. I’ve had the opportunity to work with people from different parts of the globe who have generously shared their amazing experiences, skills and knowledge with me.
The best thing about Interactive is our team culture. We have an open office space where everyone sits together. This fosters a good working environment where we’re free to collaborate. We also have a social squad who brings us all together for a quarterly synergy meeting and monthly knowledge sharing session. These events help us connect with one another. Our office also boats an in-house barista who brews the best coffee every day!
No matter how busy work can get, I make sure to find time and do the things that I love. I’m glad that Accenture provides me with the opportunities to pursue my interests. I’m an active member of the Accenture Recreational Club in Singapore. Through this group, I’ve organized events and met people from different teams and career levels outside of work. I’m also part of Accenture Dragons, representing our company in dragon boat racing competitions. In addition, I lead a special interest group that participates in Spartan Races, a series of obstacle course races across Southeast Asia. We also organize hiking trips, rock climbing sessions and fitness challenges. These extra-curricular activities have helped me form close bonds with colleagues I’ve never worked with.
In my free time, I enjoy working out, doing yoga and running. Staying physically active keeps me focused on my goals and sets discipline for myself. It also gives me a sense of achievement and inspires me to aim higher.
When it comes to achieving my work and life goals, Accenture has taught me that nothing comes without hard work. Setting targets may be important but having the willingness to do the work is even more crucial. It also pays to be open and prepared for whatever opportunity comes your way. I promise you will be amazed by how much you can accomplish once you say yes to new experiences.
