Adrienne Robbins

Business Development Executive

  • What attracted you to Slalom?
    The start-up opportunity to grow something amazing in Canada with the backing of a hugely successful organization in the US and internationally was right up my alley. Everyone that I met throughout my interview process was clearly passionate about their job and the company that they worked for – their energy was infectious and I kept wanting to know more and eventually, just had to be part of the team.
  • Experience
    I started my professional career in IT staffing, moving onto IT Research and Advisory Services, and then to Slalom!
  • What’s your favorite part of your job?
    I work with a variety of funny, intelligent, passionate people. That makes coming to work every day a treat. I also love solving problems for my client, and knowing that I have the flexibility and support from Slalom to do what’s right for the client, no matter what.
  • What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever gotten?
    To be yourself with your clients. Clients want to work with consultants that they trust, that they like, and that deliver. The market is convoluted with options, so to stand out, you really need to prove value, but just as importantly, need to hold true to your values and be yourself.
