My day typically starts with an evaluation of the project status, including a run through of each team member’s deliverables for the day or week ahead, be it joint (team) deadlines or individual targets.
Throughout the day, we check in with each other as well as with other teams where necessary. We ensure that we resolve issues and perform tasks on time and as prescribed.
My most exciting project was with a global Internet search company that wanted to uncover benchmarking insights for hundreds of mobile websites across 15 countries in Asia Pacific. We covered three primary industries: travel, finance and retail, and generated what we called mobile best practices.
The purpose of these best practices was to help improve the search and conversion experience for customers who transact on these mobile sites. As the study was the first of its kind in the region, we are very proud of the work and value we were able to deliver to the client.
In Accenture, we have an open culture that welcomes people from all backgrounds and perspectives. My teammates and I see each other more as friends rather than just work colleagues. We understand that everyone has their working style and we try to accommodate and complement each other as much as possible.
Since joining Accenture, I’ve been able to develop my skills in project management, presentation, client engagement and technical communication. I’ve learned a lot about user and design research, product marketing and data analytics.
What I like the most about Accenture are the culture and the people. The friendships I’ve built with my teammates here are very rewarding. These relationships deepen as we share more and more challenges and successes. We understand that, when working as a team, we become greater than the sum of our parts.
To stay creative and inspired, I make sure I spend my holidays and days off doing things I love. I like playing all kinds of sports, from soccer, rugby and basketball, and group games like paintball and poker. Whenever I can, I travel with my wife to places we’ve never been, even for a short weekend getaway. I also go to the movies and catch as many blockbusters as possible.
