Your day as a Consultant
At 7:00 the alarms rings, my que to get out of bed. After my morning ritual I jump in my car and depart for the client. Deloitte has recently taken on a major project from this client and I’m responsible for two specific parts of this. We start the day with a joint meeting, this is a meeting where the whole team (+60 people) shares their updates and progress concerning the project. Today my part has to report their update and I am chosen to give a small presentation on recent project developments. Next up is a brainstorming session with a colleague about improving a part of the project and I work on the implementation of this. At noon we have a casual team lunch before I go to the Edge, the Deloitte Amsterdam Office. There I have a meeting with two colleagues about a research project we’re conducting in order to improve and apply our knowledge of a specific type of financial risk. The goal of this research project is to develop a new proposition for a project at a client. After beating the interns in a game of table football I go up to the bar on the fourth floor. This is where we enjoy our well-deserved Friday afternoon drinks and today we get to hear the destination of the annual ski trip, exciting!
