Having always enjoyed problem solving and understanding the
process of decision making, I spent quite some time searching for a
role that would incorporate these interests, while having a
meaningful impact at both a company and interpersonal level. Early
in my career I observed the way that strategic decision making
impacted businesses, and the people within them, and began to look
for roles that would allow me to get more involved in this process.
Among other consulting firms, Port Jackson Partners were unique in
their specialisation in delivering this kind of strategic thinking
to some of Australia's largest companies.
After meeting with some of the people at PJP it became
clear that they offered an opportunity to become involved in high
level strategic thinking from day one.
Although always interested in business, having studied a
non-commerce degree it was reassuring to find that the training and
experience offered at PJP rapidly developed my understanding of
corporate finance and management. This has largely been the result
of PJP's low leverage model, which means that I am working in small
teams alongside highly impressive people, an opportunity that is
certainly one of PJP's greatest attributes.
Motivated by working with people, I have been pleased to find
that, beyond the financial modelling skills that I have developed
whilst at PJP, managing relationships and clear communication of
complex ideas is also a central part of my role. Since starting
with Port Jackson in early 2015 I have worked directly with clients
at the CEO and senior executive level and seen the impact of these
interactions flow on throughout the business.
Outside of management consulting I enjoy spending time camping,
bushwalking and rock climbing. The work at PJP is often challenging
and can be demanding, however I have found plenty of opportunities
to balance this with time spent in the outdoors.
