Is reimagining everything really possible? Meet Benjamin!
For Benjamin, consulting is all about helping people succeed and challenging the status quo. And he gets to do this in an industry that fascinates him. The daily challenge of reimagining what is possible can be as scary as it is exciting and rewarding.
Meet Benjamin Berton | Accenture Strategy & Consulting
"Every day I’m not out of my comfort zone is a ‘lost day’ – I’m lucky there’s been very few of them at Accenture!"

Gets annoyed by: Waiting, status quo, Excel crashes

On my nightstand: Travel books, Trends-Tendances (and occasionally traffic fines)
Listens to: My friends usually put on ‘Opus’ when they want to energize me; while I often go for ‘Time’ by Hans Zimmer when I need to focus
Would like to sit next to in the plane: The Head of UNICEF Cameroon - that already happened last March on the way to the Accenture Global Ski & Snowboard Challenge in Andorra (and it was actually a great conversation, so I’d love to get the updates) – otherwise Denzel Washington and Elon Musk (as I always end up in the middle seat anyway)

The best lesson life has taught me: Everything is possible
