Georgina's Story

Q: When you joined PwC's Strategy&?

A: 2011

Q: Why Strategy&?

A: For me it was three things: great people, a fantastic culture and intellectually challenging work.

Even before I joined I was struck by the open, non-hierarchical nature of the team and the calibre and ambition of the individuals in it. I can’t think of a better team to have started my career with.

With their support, I’ve been able to tackle a wide variety of problems for our clients and rapidly take on more responsibility. From advising top-tier private equity houses on whether to invest in the UK cinema industry and where to look for international expansion opportunities; to working with NHS organisations to understand the potential benefits and challenges of closer integration; the quality of work we get to do is better than I ever expected.

Q: What's been your most rewarding project to date?

A: Picking just one is difficult. Challenging a CEO on the benefits of divesting of one of the largest business units in her organisation was a particular highlight but I think the pro-bono work I’ve been able to get involved in really stands out. Helping a charity working with young offenders decide whether to focus on targeting their initiatives at a wider group of young people; or growing the range of services they can provide to young offenders was a brilliant experience. Being able to put the skills I’ve learned to such great use with the support of my team was a privilege, and I was amazed just how much I had learned.
