Meet Jess, a Melbourne-based Senior Consultant in our AI Institute. She is passionate about finding ways to encourage students, clients and leaders to embrace AI. Outside work you’ll find her hunting down where she can watch and enjoy Oscar-nominated films.
So, tell us about a day in the life …
Well, despite Deloitte’s PlaceFlex offering, I love going into 477 Collins (in fact, I haven’t been able to face my ‘lock-down’ home office since last year and much prefer the city views!). I’m also one for routine … So, after checking emails I create my to-do list, grab my coffee and start my day.
I’m very new to the AI team and no day has been the same – I love it! It’s also a big year for the AI Institute which is very exciting. Broadly speaking, it's focused on developing AI fluency – both with our clients and all the way to our own Deloitte teams – whilst also being the vehicle through which we publish and celebrate Deloitte's incredible AI capability.
We believe that understanding AI is essential to optimising its potential. To support this, the team is working on a brand-new AI Fluency Greenhouse experience. Brainstorming ways to help people learn about AI through fun and interactive experiences is extremely important. The AI Institute is also focusing on new ways to engage STEM talent from universities and support the increasing number of Women in AI. A lot of students don’t realise that Deloitte does the ‘fun stuff’ – the ‘cool AI’. It’s true, we do! So, it’s awesome to have the opportunity to educate students on the types of teams and roles that Deloitte has in this space. AI isn’t the future, it’s now, and it’s so important for students to recognise what’s possible.
Outside of work you’ll find me at the cinema attempting to watch every Oscar nominated film of the year, and/or drinking a nice bottle of wine. On weekends I love trying new restaurants around Melbourne or checking out museum exhibits.
