  • Identifying and leading the preparation of proposals, in collaboration with the Partner
  • Planning and managing engagements under the leadership of the Partner
  • Building relationships with clients and their teams
  • Leading client meetings and supporting the team in developing presentation materials for project kick-off meetings, requirements gathering, project management, presentation of results, etc.
