The seven what?
Two thoughts crossed my mind when three Deloitte representatives showed up to one of my accounting lectures at UTAS in 2008 to speak about the Vacationer program, and to 'Recruit and Retain the Best': “Who the heck are Deloitte?” And, “Ooh, I like the sound of all this Inspiring Women bizzo!”
From my first day with Deloitte, no opportunity was considered unattainable. I was encouraged by managers and partners to be involved in a number of different areas and to push myself to grow and improve. This led to my becoming a member of the Launceston office’s Inspiring Women Committee.
The other committee members have never hesitated to empower and trust, which recently provided me with the opportunity to organise a public speaking advice forum with our former female mayor, Janie Finlay.
The Launceston office may be small in size, but we play to win in all that we do. Since my first encounter with Deloitte, the client service capacity of the office increased with growth in the audit, CRG, a new tax sector, a merger and secondments in and out of the office. There’s always time to have fun and celebrate the achievements of our office by nominating team members for a signals award or congratulating someone on a job well done during social functions organised by our Social Committee.
The tight-knit structure of our office has taught me the value of building strong client relationships, of networking and taking every opportunity. After some straight talk from two of the partners, I have moved into Audit and it is my aim to be famous for helping the Launceston office to be the best we can.
