Build a career among people you trust and respect.
It’s a great place to build a career amongst people you trust and respect. The work is interesting and varied – and people can continue consulting at Berkeley as long as they are doing a great job and developing their capabilities.
Hi everyone, my name’s Murray.
Hi everyone, I'm Kofi.
We're here today to talk a little bit about the work that we do here at Berkeley Partnership and why Kofi and I decided to join. So to kick things off, Kofi, tell me about the variety of roles you've had at Berkeley so far.
The key thing that brought me to Berkeley was the opportunity for greater variety. With that, I had to step into areas that I was not naturally flexed in. So, new functions, new industries, new skills. In addition, stepping into these different roles required me to work very closely with my clients’ leadership teams. In part because of this, my professional, as well as my personal, growth have really benefited from joining Berkeley.
Yeah, a lot of that resonates with me as well. When I joined, I started out early on a three-month assessment of a large transformation program for a global advertising and media client. That's not an industry I'd worked in before. But very quickly, I realised that my experience in transformation and solving large complex problems was relevant for our client, so I was able to add value while also learning a new industry. The complexity of the role and the challenge really increased from there for me. Whereby, once we closed the three-month assessment, I then started to take on more of a delivery role. And now, I actually lead the delivery of the first release of that transformation. And really, I'm looking forward to a long relationship with that client and in that industry. It's really checked all the boxes that I was looking for when I made that transition, so I've really enjoyed it so far.
It's great to catch up, Murray.
You too, Kofi.
