I handle several projects, so my day-to-day tasks require rigorous time management. I provide directions on critical issues brought up by clients and my team and guide them on their daily project delivery work. I also spare some time to support the company’s training, recruitment, marketing and design process initiatives—mostly programs that empower our people to grow. I am lucky and grateful that I get to help shape the next generation of Accenture people.
The most exciting project I’ve handled was about core mutual funds replacement. It was my first project in Financial Services after working in the telecommunications industry. This was also the first time that my team and I had to “rescue” a project—it was initially unsuccessful, so my team was called in to recover the project and make sure we achieved the client’s goals. Despite the high client expectations and pressure to learn new skills and process lots of information, we were able to deliver and gain the client’s trust. We succeeded because we worked as a team and as a family. From the delivery lead to the new joiners, we supported each other as we faced challenges and created solutions.
I’m able to manage my daily tasks, achieve my work goals and more partly because I’m surrounded with amazingly talented people. My colleagues are very good in what they do and are always willing to share their knowledge. They are committed to reach their goals despite obstacles, which is in the DNA of everyone at Accenture.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. As a parent working in the technology space, I enthusiastically find new ways to raise my children using today’s fast-paced digital technologies to help parenting easier, fun, and more effective, like using mobile apps to record, notify, and analyze baby-related activities and IoT gadgets to record room temperature, lights, and wireless video monitoring with voice communication capabilities. Interestingly, through parenting, I’ve learned lots of new technologies and how people adapt to new innovations in real life.
