Project Leader, Toronto
At BCG, Pioneers have the courage to take action on unique insights. They share and activate ideas that enable our clients to gain the competitive edge. Beatrix is unafraid to try new things.
The people I work with are my greatest source of inspiration at BCG. They are passionate, driven, and always ready to take on the next challenge.
After completing my master’s program in business at ESSEC (Paris), I really wanted to start my career in a different country. BCG was one of the only consulting firms to offer me the opportunity to start abroad and work in Canada.
Since I joined, I have had diverse and challenging experiences. From financial services to industrial goods, BCG has given me great exposure to multiple industries. What is really unique about BCG is its people and also the fact that they are no preset careers. It is truly about how you want to shape your own experience. BCG is all about understanding what makes you “click” and providing the opportunities that you need in order to learn and grow every day!
Beatrix holds a master’s in science in management from ESSEC Business School (Paris).
Q: What’s the biggest impact you have had with your work?
A: The biggest impact that I can recall was when one of our clients said during a steering committee meeting, “I have been working at this company for 20 years, and I don’t recognize it anymore. You [BCG] have truly changed the way we do business here. I did not think that was possible.”
Q: If you weren’t working at BCG, what would you be doing?
A: If I was not working at BCG, I would probably be starting my own company. BCG is actually a great place to help you develop entrepreneurial skills. It teaches you to ask the right questions, pressure test your assumptions, and make fact-based decisions.
Q: What is something that has surprised you about working at BCG?
A: Very soon after joining BCG, I was amazed by the peer-to-peer mindset that exists at BCG. There is no hierarchy among the people at this company. Everyone values each other’s opinions, regardless of age, experience, or title.
