How does working for Gate One differ to your experience of working in a big firm?
At Gate One it’s a matter of experience + potential + appetite for doing what you want to do that guide where and how you work. It’s a thoroughly refreshing approach compared to the common big-firm questions of “What are you known for?”, “Have you got enough internal visibility?” and “Have you been investing enough time in your internal business network?”.
What’s unique about the skills and experience you have had the opportunity to develop at Gate One?
You own them yourselves. If you want to over-invest in entrepreneurship – do it. Digital – do it. Coaching – do it. You’re empowered to build your own version of an excellent consultant built around a professional core.
How do you feel your work has made a difference to your clients?
It’s more about outcomes than outputs. A beautiful report isn’t the end of an engagement, but the start of change for the organisation.
How would you describe the Gate One team?
Where I was before, everyone knew who the ‘good’ consultants were – the team members you loved having on your client teams. They pulled their weight, could be trusted in any client situation, and told you if they needed support. Here, we only have the ‘good’ ones.
