How David is building a better working world
“My job involves bringing together multi-disciplinary EY teams to work with client teams that have usually also been brought together at short notice to carry out demanding, strategically important, time pressured transaction assignments.
The manner in which the EY professionals work with their client counterparts − and with overall project teams − is at least as important as the technical and functional skills that they bring to bear. Encouraging close collaboration, mutual respect and rapid, open communication is critical. When clients tell me that they and their colleagues enjoy working with the EY Teams − even under the most intense pressure - then that is fantastic feedback.”
