Life at Deloitte
Terrence Chu, Manager
Can you tell us about your background and what area of Deloitte you work in?
I'm Terrence and I studied my Bachelor's at Hong Kong University of Science & Technology with a double major in Marketing and Operations Management. I started my career in supply chain business process re-engineering, but wanted something more fast paced with greater impact. I then joined Consulting with Deloitte Digital when I foresaw the importance of digitalization and wanted to be part of that transformation, being trusted to solve companies' most pressing problems.
I have collaborated with many other Consulting teams, including Technology Strategy & Transformation (TST), Strategy, Analytics & M&A (SAM), and Core Business Operations (CBO), Blockchain etc. One example is a collaboration with SAM and CBO as well as Human Capital on two projects: Organization Design and Change Management Strategy & Design. This gave me opportunities to learn more from others.

- Networking. You will work on many projects and collaborate with a lot of great people. Throughout my projects, I have made a lot of sincere friends that I meet outside work.
