What’s different about Berkeley for our clients?

With Berkeley you get genuine, intelligent, savvy consultants who are focused on doing right by their clients. All our consultants have worked with well-known brands and global organisations on different client scenarios, industries, business areas and programmes, resulting in Berkeley having a wealth of knowledge and experience across the team to draw down on, as and when needed.  We have no internal sales targets or bonuses nor is there a competitive promotions hierarchy. As a result, we can focus on finding the right solution for our clients, with a strong emphasis on building long lasting relationships and quality deliverables.

What’s the most surprising thing you learned at Berkeley?

My ability to rise to new challenges and work outside of my initial area of expertise. Prior to Berkeley, I spent more than ten years working at Accenture where I led challenging finance transformation and global business services programmes. I gained a broad range of experience across end-to-end project lifecycles, including the definition of new strategies, operating models, designing, and delivering end to end solutions and robust programme management.

Since joining Berkeley, I have continued to successfully run large programmes but have been challenged to focus on new areas such as IT and data analytics. Some of the best programmes I have worked on at Berkeley have also been those that have placed me well and truly out of my comfort zone. As a result, I’ve picked up new knowledge, learnt new skills and expanded my experience.

3  What might people be interested in knowing about you?

I love to travel and experience new foods and cultures along the way. I try to visit a new place or two each year, spending time with family and friends and embracing adventures as they come. I have lived in a few different countries and speak several foreign languages; bilingual in Polish as well as having studied Russian and French at university. I love theatre and dance and take every opportunity I can to see the latest West End show. I also love to cycle, do yoga and fitness and when at home, you’ll usually find me curled up with a good book or cooking up a storm in the kitchen!
