Quest is an international transfer program which connects Arcadians from all over the world. Quest is sponsored by the Lovinklaan Foundation. Every week we are highlighting one of the stories our employees who went on an exchange. In this blogpost we cover the Quest story of Ahren tatrowho traveled from New York to London.
“The experience allows for relationships to be built to foster personal and professional growth.“
Why did I apply for a Quest
My name is Ahren Tatro and I currently work as a Senior Management Consultant at the Arcadis office in San Francisco, California. Back when I still worked at the office in New York, I was looking to connect with colleagues in the U.K. and decided to go on a Quest exchange . My aim was to understand more about their business and clients while providing feedback on how we operate stateside.
Highlight of my Quest experience
During my Quest, I was able to attend a quarterly meeting and connect with nearly every member of the U.K. management consulting practice. I was also able to visit a client site and learn more about how we engage with them on a daily basis.
Learnings and experiences
A few takeaways I took with me from my Quest were the contracting methods used per office and getting an understanding in the different offerings within Arcadis that we can translate into wins. I would recommend anyone with a desire to learn more about the company to go on a Quest. You will make useful network connections and get more work opportunities by taking full advantage of this amazing benefit!
