Life at Deloitte
Mubashir Anwar | Middle East—United Arab Emirates
Tell us about your career path at Deloitte (How long have you worked for Deloitte, how has your career evolved?)
I have been working for Deloitte Middle East since October 2009, eight years this October. I started in the graduate program and have progressed over the years.
What has been your favorite part of working for Deloitte?
My favorite part is the confidence Deloitte Middle East leaders give me and the trust clients place in me. I have the confidence that I can guide our teams on certain aspects and that leadership is backing my efforts. That is the best part—when you realize you belong.
How has Deloitte invested in you as a leader, helping you grow?
Deloitte Middle East has created ample opportunities for my growth. It’s there for everyone to take. Deloitte culture grooms you in directions where you don’t always realize you have transitioned from student to teacher. And back to a student. It’s about always learning and growing.
How do you feel that you have been able to make an impact while working at Deloitte?
As I develop my knowledge and skills over the years, making an impact is a part of my daily actions. Whether it’s in interactions with clients, managing staff, or dealing with personal issues, the impact of my work with Deloitte ME is present each day.
List your proudest professional and personal achievements.
Professionally, I am proud of the trust that firm leadership places in me. I don’t believe it is necessary for a single moment to define you. It’s about your everyday actions.
Personally, I come from a humble background and my progression in Deloitte ME is a source of pride to my family and friends.
