I am a business analyst from Panama who’s passionate about consumer businesses and innovation.

Why I chose these pieces

I believe that, through these pieces, we show the best of McKinsey: the ability to lead in times of change. In the first piece, we showcase how in times of crisis, we as individuals take the time to reflect and look upon our individual sense of purpose for reinvention. In the next topics, we exhibit this drive to adapt to newfound consumer preferences and a more sustainable future in businesses in a diverse array of industries (from healthcare to the automotive and fashion industries).
