Meet Maria, a New York-based Senior Consultant in our Data & AI team who recently transferred from our Sydney office all the way across the globe to the US – a huge tick off her bucket list!
So, tell us about a day in the life …
As cliché as it sounds, I don’t think any day is quite the same in our field! I’ve gone from running client workshops, to building visualisation dashboards, to moderating firm-wide panels – all within the one day!
In short – my day is often a fun mix of technical work and client interactions; and honestly, that is how I’d best describe my skillset. In the Data & AI team we have this great concept called ‘Purple People’ (stick with me on this one…), which is essentially what we use to describe individuals who can blend and leverage their technical skills with their ability to distil often difficult concepts to our clients in the most simple, informative and impactful way possible.
I love that my role enables me to do this, and I especially love that I’m able to build strong client relationships by instilling trust and understanding of complex, but exciting, concepts such as AI.
