An evening which saw budding Consultants at HEC  Paris come together to interact with the Managing Director at Accenture, Paris

The HEC Consulting Club launched the CONSULTING INSIDE-OUT Speaker Series on 22nd February 2013. The first of this series was marked with a speaker session by Mr.Nicolas Monsarrat, Managing Director at Accenture Paris.

Mr.Monsarrat has 21 years of experience in Management Consulting at Accenture, and specializes in the Public Service, Government, Media & Entertainment & Communications Sector. An engineer by education, he joined Accenture in 1992 in an Analyst’s role, and has constantly been climbing up the professional ladder to now become the Managing Director at Accenture.

With his vast experience, he gave us an insight into the management consulting culture as well as the Vertical & Horizontal organization Structure of the Consulting team at Accenture.  He also gave us vivid examples of two of his past projects in the French Public Sector& Telecommunications Sector, giving us a clear idea about the ‘start-to-end’ phase of a Consulting project at Accenture.

The team that made it possible

Mr.Monsarrat answered several questions from a crowd thirsty for more knowledge about pursuing consulting as a career. He also provided tips for career switchers as well as geographically transcending into the Consulting sector. The presentation ended with a bang when he showed us a video about NYC 311 – Accenture’s Public Service Call Solution, which has revolutionized the working of the New York City government in answering the queries of New Yorkers.

This was followed by an interactive cocktail session, giving the members a chance to ask him further questions, including Accenture’s expansion into emerging markets and experiences in his long career with Accenture.

Overall, it was an extremely informative session and the Consulting Club, on behalf of all its members, would like to thank Mr.Monsarrat for taking his time out to inaugurate the Speaker Session.

Not to mention, a note of thanks to all the members who attended the session, and made it extremely interactive!
