1Why did you join Berkeley?

I was previously at a big four consulting firm for over 10 years. As my career progressed, I found myself focusing and specialising in certain sectors and on certain types of transformation projects.

It was truly a very difficult decision to leave but ultimately, I decided that I did want to be a transformation specialist, but across a broader range of sectors. I can happily say that Berkeley delivered!

In the time I’ve been at Berkeley, I have worked on large transformation programmes for clients in the health sector, consumer products, higher education and online retailer amongst others.

2What’s been your favourite piece of work and why?

In 2018 I was lucky enough to work on a high priority government fund, aimed at reducing knife crime across England amongst youths. This involved developing a strategy for how this fund could be structured and administered and then putting in place the mechanisms needed to launch it.

I worked closely with Home Office officials, stakeholders from multiple government departments and senior officials at Number 10. I feel very proud to have launched an initiative that aims to have a real and tangible impact on the lives of young people.

3Why did you become a management consultant?

I studied economics and government at university and always thought I would either go into the business world or the political world. After interning with a Member of Parliament and getting a peek at what the world of politics entails, I decided that becoming a consultant was probably a better fit! I love the fact that I still get to solve real issues and make a difference to our clients and to society through what I do.
