"Our job is to help make Expo 2020 one of the smartest, fastest and best-connected places on earth."
As a Management Consultant, I manage day-to-day operational activities and provide project management governance support to project managers. I have always been very passionate about my role, especially interactions with people from various backgrounds and cultures.
One of my latest projects is working on Expo 2020 Dubai, known as “the world’s greatest show.” Expo 2020 brings together a world of talent, the very best of human brilliance and achievement with an aim to inspire and connect people in innovative and creative ways. With Accenture as the Official Digital Services Partner (together with Etisalat Digital), our job was to help make Expo 2020 one of the smartest, fastest and best-connected places on earth. My role as Project Manager involves capturing program-level requests and ensuring that those requests have enough relevant information to aid in the assessment of project.
I’ve had the great opportunity to collaborate with the Expo 2020 team while acting as a single point of contact between the client and my Accenture teammates. This has helped me build a strong relationship with each individual within the project and is helping achieve an excellent end-to-end client result.
My team includes Client Account Leadership Senior Manager Giuseppi D’Angelo, who handles the day-to-day relationship with Expo 2020 stakeholders; CRM-Marketing Lead Vineet Kaul, who manages the information technology landscape; and Marketing Lead Loren Naish, who capitalizes on the opportunities that come with partnering on such a huge event.

My job is to make sure that standards, procedures, and policies are followed to ensure that projects are successful. On a daily basis, I collaborate extensively with various stakeholders to make sure that everything is in the right place and going in right direction.
A typical day for me starts with daily governance meetings, and then I speak with each team member individually, depending on project needs. Each day brings a whole set of new activities to be completed as required by the account team or client leadership.
