Profiles: Anna Fosse Galtier
For our very first Profile, we are delighted to introduce Anna, who joined us as an intern way back in October 2019 and since then has gone from strength to strength. A proud Newcastle United fan, Anna was born in France and now lives in London.
Before joining PAG, Anna studied for her master’s in international political economy, and conducted research for a think-tank on the impact of rare earth metals on the environment. She is now one of our Senior Consultants and has developed a particular interest for working in the Social Justice sector as well as in Education.
Editor’s Note: Anna’s responses have been edited for clarity and length.
What kind of projects do you work on at PAG?
Do you have a project that you are particularly proud of or enjoyed working on and why?
We contributed to the placement of more than 300 young people into jobs, and the delivery of employability training to approximately 200 individuals.
Why did you start working in consultancy?
What are your best tips for working from home?
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
I think the best advice I received was to make sure to never under-value myself because of who else might be in the room.
It is easy when you’re a young, non-native woman to feel you’re not experienced enough to speak up during a meeting, even if you know the subject like the back of your hand. It’s a very unnatural process for many of us to be assertive or self-confident, but it’s inevitable that at some point we’ll need to get out of our comfort zone.
