In my last year of PhD, I started looking for a job which will also give me a broad range of interesting projects and will challenge me to continue learning. Strategy& gives me this intellectual challenge, and at the same time provides enough support and encouragement.

One of my project highlights is a global transformation for a cement company where I went to 20+ locations for over 4 months, always with the core team incl. the client. This taught me a lot about cultural differences and about developing lifetime relationships with clients by working side by side.
