Associate Partner: Business Analysis

How did you build your career at IQbusiness?

My journey started in 2010 with IQbusiness, where I wanted to get back into Management Consulting from IT Consulting. It has been a phenomenal journey working through different clients, predominantly in Financial Services. I started running with the BA competency in 2014 and started growing and formalising the career progression from a BA perspective in conjunction with leading teams (direct reporting and project lead), partnering with Client Development in the Absa CIB space and started building and owning relationships in CIB. In 2018, I took ownership of the Analysis Line of Business and have been heading this up and looking to grow this LOB into the future.

Can you share an experience that demonstrates one of our values?

Servant Leadership is very prominent in IQbusiness. There are no hierarchies and everyone is on a level playing field. Our leaders are the first at the coal face and will take the necessary steps with our people top of mind. They also take direction when needed from every level in the organisation.

What is the best advice someone at IQbusiness gave you?

I have learnt a lot from the different partners - but the main message was "be consistent, be present and respond quickly".
