I am responsible for the growth and strategy of our Workday practice. Workday is a cloud-based human capital management and financial management solution and one of hottest technologies in the market place. My role is to lead our people in helping clients through transformations that will bring a whole new way of working and superior employee experiences. This includes confirming that we have the best Workday talent, assets, and delivery approach in the marketplace.
Our Workday practice is all about hyper growth and acceleration. As part of our Cloud First Applications team, it’s one of the fastest growing areas at Accenture. I am proud of the talent strategy we have developed for our Workday practice. We know to make our clients successful, we need to focus on our people, so that’s where we put our investment. It’s all about learning and helping our people get the most from their client experiences to build their careers. I invite you to learn more in this video.
As a global managing director at Accenture, my daily life varies but they are always focused on two key elements: listening to our clients to understand their needs and working with my team to develop a proposal or solution on how we can help address those challenges.
A typical day in my life starts with exercise, followed by conference calls with my teams in Europe. Quite often, it follows with a race through security at the airport to visit a client, and enjoying the chance to work peacefully at 30K feet above the ground. Upon landing, I may workshop a solution onsite with our clients, then I head back to the hotel or airport to do it all again!
Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with family, traveling and interior design. Wellness is also important to me, and I try to start my day with a pilates session or early run with my dog.
I am also on the Board of Directors for Junior Achievement.
Focus on outcomes, have integrity, and laugh… a lot! I have found that working hard and doing your best opens the door to countless opportunities. The firm has always recognized me for my contributions and given me new ways to continuously grow. And you certainly have to have fun along the way!
