One of the most exciting projects I’ve worked on recently was a proof of concept (PoC) for a leading metal and mineral supplier where we surprised the client with a demo after having only had 1.5 days to research, design and develop an innovative worker task flow. We combined live facial recognition for login and gesture-driven navigation of an on-screen task flow, with text-to-speech for task confirmation. Currently, we’re working on a project that helps microbusinesses in developing countries to better understand their finances—with a great, positive impact on the success of their businesses and their wider communities.
We take a fresh approach at Interactive, actively encouraging the spirit of innovation, collaboration and experimentation to stay at the forefront of understanding “the possible” for our clients and their users. I feel privileged, as I have the best of both worlds: a corporation of 500,000+ people to support the wider picture, while having a “home team” that allows me to keep the entrepreneurial spirit that drives the Studios.
I used to race TVR Tuscan cars in Europe in my free time, but these days, I mainly focus on my children. They are currently four and six, and they regularly inspire and challenge me—with questions about everything. The workplace flexibility I have at Accenture is important to me, as I want to ensure a good work-life balance.
