An engineer at heart, Denise’s journey into technology and consulting began with an internship in the field of bio-mechanical engineering. It was during this time that she was inspired to broaden her engineering foundations and apply her skills within a business context to help organisations achieve growth through technology and innovation.
Since joining Accenture’s Australian practice as an Analyst in 2006, she has worked in a range of fields from telecommunications, to oil and gas in the UK and USA, before focusing on Health. “Accenture provided me the springboard that catapulted me into a variety of experiences that laid the foundations for my career, helping me to develop expertise in a diverse range of industries and build depth in technology skills.”
Denise is now a Client Account Lead in Accenture’s Health practice in South East Asia, helping clients be future ready by implementing innovative digital solutions to deliver more effective, efficient, and affordable healthcare. Her role involves working with Accenture’s leadership to build relationships with clients and orchestrating a diverse team of technologists, engineers and industry specialists to solve client problems through tangible, practical and innovative solutions. The challenge of communicating in different styles to suit the needs of different team members is one that Denise thrives on. “Being able to discern each situation and tailor my style and communication to bring together diverse sets of people to strive for one common goal…that’s something I thrive on and really enjoy.”
