When I applied at Accenture, I knew I wanted to work for a big company and to learn about different roles in a variety of industries. During my first interview, I was asked not just what I wanted to do, but what I didn’t want to do. Although my first response was, “SAP projects and logistics,” the first training course I was sent on in 2005 was SAP materials management, focusing on purchasing and logistics! I made the best of it as a great learning experience, and I’ve had the same attitude to whatever pops up on my radar ever since.
In the hospital setting, patient care is no longer just about traditional care but rather an integrated care path from first-line to second- and third-line care services. Digital is an important pillar for making this happen; for example, online doctors are able to monitor disease at a distance, and we’re even seeing an AI impact, with the arrival of small robots.
I have thousands of good memories of Accenture: the brilliant people I worked with; the complex and interesting projects during which I developed skills I still use today; the "end-to-end" view and the ability to think globally and not in silos. I also really appreciated the culture and strong team spirit.
