Consultant profile

Alison Lindsay

Business Consultant

“Terra Firma is very much about investing in its people with hands-on client facing experiences”

Why did you join Terra Firma?

Terra Firma offered me what I would call the perfect mix: access to a variety of clients in a variety of industries, and a great support network. As a result, my skills and breadth of experience have grown extensively.

Describe your time at Terra Firma to date.

My time with Terra Firma as a business analyst has been very diverse. My first client engagement was with a regional rail operations and maintenance company, and my more recent contract was with a not-for-profit superannuation fund. I’ve really enjoyed working in the superannuation industry; it’s a complex and highly driven regulatory environment with a strong customer focus. I’ve loved the challenge of working in this industry.

Outside of client engagements, I’m also very actively involved in the Terra Firma social club where I’ve organised a number of fund-raising activities and staff social events for staff to connect with each other. It’s also a great way to give back to the community.

What are you looking forward to in your career at Terra Firma?

I’m really excited about continuing to grow my skills as a business analyst and taking on larger and more complex projects. I have also received a lot of wonderful mentoring and coaching from senior Terra Firma consultants, and I’m keen to return the favour and start being a mentor for new staff members. I’m looking forward to passing on  the skills I have learnt from the Terra Firma consulting community.
