Consulting is an attractive and stimulating career option in the private sector for many scientists, but it is often idealised. What does it actually mean to work in consulting after a PhD, especially with a focus on sustainability? What are the prerequisites and skills needed to get started? And to what extent does it pay to have a scientific background?

This networking event offers first-hand information and experience on the transition from academia to the private sector.
After completing her PhD in biochemistry, Camilla de Nardis decided to switch to a career in sustainability. She started from scratch, first as a scientific writer creating a grass-root sustainability team and then as a communications and sustainability manager for a biotech company, where she developed her own role and further professionalized with a postgraduate education in sustainable business. Today, after some changes that she describes as a “refinement process”, she works as a senior sustainability consultant for Capgemini in the Netherlands and she is sharing her professional experience with the WiNS network.
