At the moment I’m a Delivery Manager for a subsidiary of Accenture. I started at this job as a Data Engineer, but my MD thought I should be doing more management type of services.

Big Life Wins:

– In my project work I was able to secure an extension of our contract replacing the other contracting service that was working alongside us. – Given many life circumstances, I have had to work a lot of things coming from different directions in life. As my friend would say “most people don’t know the yarn ball of a life you’re given”.

Post MBA Goal:

My main goal post-MBA is to either work in MBB or go into Tech PE. By Tech PE I mean analyzing different tech companies and making an investment in them. This is a field I feel I can get into mainly because I understand technology maybe more than some finance graduates.
