“One of the main reasons I love working at Novasecta is that we help our clients answer difficult problems in a way that makes sense to them – in essence we ‘get’ our clients really well. We are not like other big name consultancies; it’s not our thing to generate mountains of PowerPoint, or boil the ocean through analysis. Instead, we use a combination of experience, creativity and analysis to create options that make sense to the client and their situation. I also really enjoy the fact we are building a special company – we deliver great projects, but we also have fun whilst we do so and make time for our lives outside of work. With two young children, a great partner and four chickens that side of my life is pretty full on!”
