“Really getting to know the client: that’s the main task of a good adviser. Only then can you help them in the right way. How does the company operate? And the sector? Who are the most important stakeholders? Who are the people working at the client? That’s how you can build a relationship together, as the basis of successful cooperation.”
How Dick is building a better working world
“I always come home more full of energy than when I set out. At EY, you’re operating at the highest standard, with leading international clients and extremely clever people. Colleagues who are really ready to go the extra mile. So, yes, I’m pleased with that. But I’m also satisfied with the sectors I work in. Both fields are extremely tangible and in flux. A lot of disruption is going on in Consumer Products right now, while the question in Agriculture is: how can we reduce our ecological footprint? All of that requires innovation and entrepreneurship. It’s very inspiring.”
