Meet Damini Harne, Strategy Consultant

Meet Damini, a Melbourne-based Strategy Consultant in Deloitte Monitor. She is passionate about teamwork, keeping her clients happy and helping to solve diverse problems.

So, tell us about a day in the life … 

If I’m in the office, my day kicks off with a coffee run and a yarn with my team mates about our weekends. This is followed by a project team stand-up where we agree on plan of action for the day and end with a nifty group icebreaker (e.g., on my last project we came up with a Spotify playlist with a song for every single letter for the alphabet!). 

The rest of the day then varies from project to project. The start of an engagement will usually begin with bit of desktop research and getting up to speed on the client and the industry. On my current project we’re working closely with the client to define the problem and co-creating our approach as we go. This means there’s lots of interviewing, whiteboarding and team brainstorming sessions – a great opportunity to flex your teamwork and client management skills. On a typical day I’ll usually try to take a break around 4pm to get out for a quick walk and catch some sunshine before logging back on in the evening to wrap up my work and plan for the next day.

Why Deloitte?

I was sold on the people-first culture. And Deloitte Flex. And the new schmancy Melbourne office!

Because no two days look the same. I can swivel between projects which vary in length, try my hand at engagements across various industries, supporting a wide range clients solve diverse problems – all while getting the opportunity to work with some of the most brilliant individuals. The combinations and permutations are endless!

You’ll be challenged to think critically, learn how to expertly deal with ambiguity, have the opportunity to make an impactful contribution in helping your clients solve some of their toughest problems and make great friendships along the way – oh and become an absolute connoisseur at slipping in consulting lingo in your day-to-day conversations (not sure if that one counts as a plus, but let’s circle back)
