Associate, Hong Kong
At BCG, Visionaries navigate complexity with ease. They use their insight and intuition to identify the solutions that will create lasting impact. Annie connects the dots to see the bigger picture.
My key learning from BCG is to focus on what matters and to find clarity in a complex world—not just at work but in everyday life.
I turned to consulting to expose myself to different industries and expand my range of knowledge before deciding on a long-term career path. I wanted be challenged, stimulated, and engaged. BCG's platform has allowed me to do just that.
At BCG, time is no longer viewed in the lens of months or years, but in days and weeks. I am constantly pushed to think critically, deduce logically and solve creatively. Each project is a journey that strives for the "so what." I feel like I am constantly learning in a challenging but safe environment.
Annie holds a finance and economics degree from the University of Toronto.
