Meet Manuela. Manuela is a senior manager in Risk Advisory at Deloitte Germany. She supports her clients through IT asset risk management, helping them achieve the highest possible returns on their IT investments. Manuela also leads and executes regional strategic business projects, including the institution of shared service centres to enable Deloitte’s European network of firms to more easily collaborate as one team.
Manuela loves juggling a variety of tasks and responsibilities each day. She finds it exciting to integrate business with a deep understanding of IT architectures and enjoys working with new technologies that push her to learn and grow.
Manuela feels more women belong in risk because the more diverse a business environment, the more successful its pursuits will be. She explains, “if you look at a problem with a team of people who have different cultural backgrounds, skill sets, and experiences, you are looking at it multi-dimensionally, and that always leads to better solutions.”
One of Manuela’s proudest accomplishments is leading a client engagement with a top logistics provider, in which she was asked to address challenges in the client’s ecosystem. Manuela and her team resolved these challenges by implementing tools that provide transparency into the client’s IT assets and organisational structure, thereby optimising its IT investments.
In Manuela’s opinion, women can tend to be more reserved than they need to be when sharing their innovative, unconventional ideas. She strongly believes women are equally skilled at everything they do — all they need to succeed is self-confidence.
-Manuela continues, “The best advice I can give: speak up, be bold, and just do it.”
We need more like Manuela. We need more like you.
