KPMG in South Africa
For some, moving from audit to strategy consulting could be an unnerving experience. But for Boitumelo it felt completely natural. She had enjoyed her career as an accountant with KPMG in South Africa, but also craved a new experience. She’s now moved from what she regards as a largely retrospective, box-ticking approach to one that’s more forward-looking. Discovering KPMG’s Nine Levers of Value was a real “Wow!” moment for Boitumelo. Here was a way of looking at businesses that made perfect sense to her, and provides consultants with great tools and structure, without limiting creativity.The people Boitumelo works with are very important. During the interview process she was so impressed by the quality and intellectual rigor of those she met. It made her realize that she didn’t have to leave a Big Four firm to work in cutting edge strategy consulting; the opportunity was right there on her doorstep. As a mother to two sports-mad boys, Boitumelo’s life is pretty hectic, as you can imagine. She’s traveling around the African continent frequently. But she gets great support and wouldn’t want it any other way.
