‘Making my own McKinsey’ means combining my experience, personal strengths, curiosity, and passion to develop organisations and leaders.
A world of opportunities
I became interested in McKinsey after almost a decade of prior consulting experience, based in Europe but active globally. I was surprised and impressed by what I found—a firm that is truly unique, and combines:
- a diverse community of people who are passionate about being the best in their fields and make a real difference to clients and in the world more broadly
- a set of professional values grown from a long history that shaped management consulting as a profession, which makes it a special environment to work in
- a world of possibilities, given the sheer breadth and depth of the work that gets done here, which provides the opportunities to make a difference and keep growing professionally and personally
Being of service to society
I always wanted to give back—and at McKinsey, I do, in Singapore and the region. For example, I am helping the Singapore International Foundation develop young social entrepreneurs, and I am deeply involved in developing young entrepreneurs in the Greater Mekong region through the Mekong Business Challenge. I also work to develop the capabilities of our next generation of leaders as part of our Young Leaders for Indonesia program and our Youth Leadership Academy in Malaysia; I apply my experience from working with senior clients to mentoring, coaching and giving lectures, especially on leadership and entrepreneurship.
