You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
I read this article today The Top Microsoft Dynamics Employers and I was pleased to see KPMG Crimsonwing being rated as the number 1 Microsoft Dynamics employer rated by recruitment agency Conspicuous.
I attended training on Core consultancy skills lead by one of my colleagues. I learnt some valuable consultancy skills and I now have some great tools to use. Part of the training involved giving a 2 minute presentation on any topic, we then got feedback from the instructor and the rest of the group. It was a useful session because when watching other people present I was focusing on the content of the presentation but the delivery.
- Stand naturally
- Don’t put your hands in your pockets
- Don’t fidget
- Talk clearly
- Use your hands
- The pacing of a talk is important
I had been reading the book Mastery by Robert Greene and got me thinking about careers and pushing yourself. On the train back from Canary Wharf I wrote up my presentation into the blog post
Why do people stay in boring jobs
I enjoyed CRM development but I wanted to challenge myself, learn new skills and get more experience in designing CRM solutions.
Joining KPMG Crimsonwing
I joined KPMG Crimsonwing in November and it has been a whirlwind few months and I have been challenged and pushed harder than any of my earlier roles.
In my 3 months I have attended these training courses
- Attending Azure Architect Training course
- FieldOne Training
- Core Consultancy Training
The training courses were excellent but to attend the training courses I did self learning prerequisites, which helped introduce me to the topics.
After the training I have been able to use the skills learnt during training which has helped reinforce the topics covered.
Colleagues are a great source of information, opinions, best practices and advice. Watching how your colleagues approach tasks can help you assess your approach and the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches.
