What’s the most exciting piece of work you’ve done?

 

 

Hong Kong – I think the most exciting element of my job is translating complex business information into simple and, hopefully, interesting messages for people across China.

 

Moscow – It involves liaising with six different KPMG offices spread across three different continents. My colleagues from those offices and I were trying to trace financial assets that had been packaged together and hidden away in offshore jurisdictions in low transparency — little tropical islands, basically. It was something like out of a John Grisham novel.

 

London – We won a new client and I came to the UK. It was great working on a new client because you have to really understand the business, read about the client and make the client get a fundamental understanding of what the processes are like, what the risks are, work these audit files from the scratch and develop things fundamentally from your understanding.

 

Toronto – I got my first opportunity to work on some public client when I moved to KPMG, here in Toronto. I now have a couple of big clients who have many things going on at any given point in a year. I have had the opportunity to work with various acquisitions and mergers that they have done and those have been fun.

We also work with smaller businesses, governments and public bodies, and across our service areas we help clients deal with challenges such as cross-border mergers and acquisitions, organizational change and other complex issues.

 

The way we work is geared to the client’s business, and often you’ll be working with professionals from across the service lines to deliver a complete solution, which will give you in-depth knowledge of particular industry sectors. Whatever you’re doing, you’ll be working with outstanding people and facing fresh challenges throughout your career.
