Hi Antonia,
Traditionally companies have worked relatively separately in different countries. For example in retail, brands would often charge different prices for the same item in different countries. However now they are becoming increasingly globally connected and as such expect their consultants to offer a globally connected service. Deloitte is addressing this by linking the member firms together much more. Recently all the Deloitte firms across North-West Europe announced they will be merging together in order to offer a more connected service

What effects will the merge have on individual firms?

There are a lot of advantages, example being able to use the best person for a role regardless of which country they are coming from. Challenges include different operating processes and fee structures in different firms

This is very interesting, how do you expect to overcome language barriers between firms?

08/12/2016

To answer the original question There are also challenges that will be more specific to different service lines. So within Deloitte Digital the challenges of disruptive technology for our clients is something that is particularly important. What we have to do is to ensure that we stay one step ahead to be able to provide our clients with the best solutions to tackle these technologies

Disruptive technology like fintech?

08/12/2016

Yes, that is one good example. There are other areas such as virtual and augmented reality, which we have some great gadgets in the office to show off to our clients to help them understand the impact they could have and possibilities they could bring
