Your day as a Senior Consultant
7:00 time to get up! After a quick breakfast I’m settled in the train. Time to check my e-mail and prepare some slides for a client presentation this morning. A small hour later I arrive at the client where I meet my team to have a coffee and discuss the presentation and strategy just before the client meeting. Together with the team, we successfully present our slides. We receive questions from the client on topics which belong to my expertise. We have a fruitful discussion and talk about the next steps. Afterwards, I process a number of action points that came out of the meeting. Before I know it, a colleague is standing next to my table: Lunch Time!! Together with the whole team we enjoy lunch and discuss the weekend. The afternoon has another meeting on the schedule, so together with a senior manager we jump in his car off to the Edge, the Deloitte office in Amsterdam. At the Edge we meet with some colleagues of Deloitte Consulting and continue working together on a proposal. After a small hour we all need a break and search some relaxation during a table football match: Consulting vs. Risk! With renewed energy we focus for some more hours on the proposal, finish it before the deadline at 6pm and send it to our partners for the last review. For me, the job is done and I rush myself to the hockey field for the business competition. The day ends with some well-deserved beers after the hockey match together with my colleagues from different services areas within Deloitte.
