We sat down with one of our Senior Associate Consultants, Mette Kudahl, to find out more about what a typical day is like for her at Blue Latitude:
At 7:00 AM
Shower, get dressed, pack my bag and then I’m out of the door. Takes no more than 25 mins..
I live in Cambridge and because of this have a bit of a commute. I cycle to the station, where I catch a train to London Kings Cross. From there I take the tube to Farringdon. If the weather (and time) allows it I walk to the office.
Somewhere between 9am and 9.30am.
I usually check my emails on the way in on the train, so most days start with whatever task is on top of the to-do list that particular day.
I prefer to dedicate at least half a day to one project at a time. That way I can get more work done in one go. The type of work depends on the nature of the project that I am resourced to. My work is all about supporting the senior consultants and this primarily consists of desk research, generating and analysing insights, and of course attending meetings.
I listen to three types of music: 1) Motown, 2) Mozart and Chopin, and 3) the latest radio hits by artists like Ed Sheeran and MØ.
Depends on the workload. I don’t mind working through lunch, but if the time allows it I enjoy spending my lunch break reading the news or going out for lunch with some of my colleagues.
Check my emails and then continue working on the project of the day.
The same as my mornings, pretty much.
‘Cutting through complexity’ – making sense of pharma and healthcare is very complex; it’s the hardest part of my job, but also the one that motivates me the most. The more tangible everyday challenge is getting through the hoard of people on my daily sprint from the tube to the train at King's Cross on my way home from work.
Somewhere between 5:30pm and 6:00PM
I sit on the train listening to a Danish podcast, maybe reading a printout from work or else browsing social media like Facebook and LinkedIn.
BBC, The Daily Beast and Danish newspaper Berlingske.
Mette has a bachelor's degree in organisational communication and has a master's degree in economics and business administration and specialised in the pharmaceutical industry by studying a minor in BioEntrepreneurship.
