    ‘ALWAYS BE THE BLUE BANANA’

    This November marks Charlotte van Thienen’s 15-year anniversary at Accenture. Having started as a fresh-faced graduate, she gradually climbed the corporate ladder to arrive in the position she holds today: that of HR Director. “Whenever I started getting a little restless, a new challenge or role would arise within the company.

    ‘I was born and raised in Apeldoorn. I had a fantastic childhood and absolutely loved growing up there. Still, once I’d finished high school, I couldn’t wait to broaden my horizons, and so I decided to move to The Hague to study. That said, I felt strongly that one day I would return to Apeldoorn to raise my children there. It’s funny how things change. Even though my husband, Johan, comes from Apeldoorn too, neither of us have any plans to go back now.’

Unfortunately, in this remote working-dominated age of COVID-19, driving to and from clients is no longer an option. “I miss the real-life connection with clients and co-workers greatly.  Connecting with people is part of what drives my love for my work – so much so that I sometimes find myself wanting to just reach through the computer screen during virtual meetings.

    ‘SUCCESS MEANS BRINGING SOMETHING TO A MEANINGFUL CONCLUSION’

    Calling him a rebel might be pushing it, but Harald Timmer isn’t the sort who particularly enjoys being told what to do. He would much rather have his responsibilities and goals laid out for him, and then be given the freedom to find the best way to get to the end post. “I love that Accenture provides me with that freedom, within reason, of course. At this company virtually anything is possible, as long as you make it happen yourself.”

    Opportunities are there to be taken

    'As managing director, I set the bar high: some people even think I’m just a bit too ambitious. But I want to get the most out of anything I’m doing. Opportunities are there to be taken; happiness needs to be won'. This is the portrait of Nicole van Det, Managing Director Products.
