Work Experience

Hello – I’m Valerie and it’s great meeting you!  I’ve been in and out of both consulting and industry over the last 15+ years, working across UK, EMEA and APAC. 

I started my career in strategy consulting with Arthur D. Little, before moving onto the client side, driving consumer-centric growth strategies and performance improvement initiatives, from design through to execution. I even had the chance to launch a new hair care brand in India, which achieved 3% market share within 18 months.

I eventually moved back to consulting, first as a freelancer, leading the commercial post-merger integration of 40 P&G brands with Coty across Professional Beauty, Consumer and Luxury segments, for the Nordic markets. I later joined PwC Strategy&’s Deals Strategy team, advising PE funds and PortCos on target screening, commercial due diligence and value creation planning. I’m currently working with Kearney, as a Principal in the Transactions and Transformation team, where I support corporate and PE clients in driving strategic transformation and profitable, sustainable growth.

Over the last 7 years, I've also been dedicating time to mentoring and coaching within my team and supporting former colleagues, students, and alumni from my alma mater, ESSEC Business School.

What I bring to you:

·      Insider insights: With 15+ years of experience across top consulting firms and industry players, I bring you proven strategies and best practices to help you succeed in consulting interviews.

·      Real-world case experience: I'll leverage my diverse project experience to help you practice on cases that closely mirror real consulting engagements, building your problem-solving skills to tackle any case.

·      Holistic coaching approach: I take a holistic approach, focusing not only on case-cracking techniques but also on developing your unique personal brand, executive presence, and communication skills.

·      Empathetic and actionable feedback: I'm invested in your success and will provide detailed, constructive feedback and clear action steps to help you progress and perform at your best on interview day.

If you're looking for a trusted partner and guide on your journey in consulting, I would be honoured to work with you. Let’s connect to discuss your goals and how I can help you achieve them.  Looking forward to meeting you!

My Coaching Approach:

My coaching philosophy is centered around empowering you to showcase your unique strengths and experience, while providing you with the technical skills and insider knowledge to excel and shine throughout the demanding consulting interview process.

I offer a holistic and personalized coaching approach that combines:

  • Case interview mastery: By combining real case interview simulations, targeted drills, and detailed, actionable feedback, you'll develop the structured thinking, analytical, and executive communication skills to tackle any case with confidence
  • Authentic personal branding: Your unique experiences and passions are your greatest assets. I'll work with you to craft compelling narratives that showcase your achievements, values, and fit for the role. By unearthing your distinctive strengths and presenting them in an authentic, impactful way, you'll make a lasting impression on your interviewers
  • Holistic consulting skills development: Succeeding in consulting interviews requires a multifaceted skill set. I provide comprehensive training on all aspects of the interview process, from networking and resume optimization to developing executive presence and building trust with your interviewer. You'll gain the technical and interpersonal skills to thrive not only in your interviews but also in your consulting career

My approach allows my coachees not only to shine through the interview process but also to kick off their consulting careers with an advantage.
