Introducing Andrew Prenter the next in our  #MeetTheNewtyners series  who joined Newtyne in 2022 as a Data & Analytics Consultant.

With previous experience as consultant at Fintech and a wide range of technical skills enhanced by excellent interpersonal and stakeholder management skills he is the ultimate professional providing the full package.

We asked him a few questions about his time with Newtyne

Here’s what he had to say:

Hi Andrew , What attracted you to the role of a Data and Analytics consultant?

I have a background working in financial technology as a project manager and business development officer, combined with studying various programming languages at university.

The role of a Data and Analytics consultant allowed me to excel in applying a holistic approach to the project while it progresses through the project life cycle, while enhancing my technical skills when working on complex large datasets.

Furthermore, the role incorporates both the need for soft skills and technical skills. It not only provides a platform to sharpen your technical skills but also thrive in stakeholder engagement and working alongside colleagues.

What has been the best part of your consultancy experience so far?

Having worked on multiple different projects of a smaller scale, the best part of my experience thus far would be the skills I have acquired in working on such a large scale project with multiple different workstreams and iterations.

It has been so rewarding thriving in a multidisciplinary project with so many colleagues of different talents and backgrounds. It has highlighted my strengths and inspired me to grow in other areas of my career.

Additionally, the opportunity to work with so many different subject matter experts has given me a wealth of knowledge I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to attain.

What key skills do you think are key to success as a Consultant?

There are a variety of skills required to be successful as a consultant, often these skills are learned on the job and sometimes may not even be thought of until they are required.

However, I would list the top 4 key skills as: Communication (with an emphasis on listening and interpreting), being perceptive, adaptability and willingness to learn.

Communication is important for comprehending information in meetings – both providing and receiving.

When working with extremely large sets of data it’s important to constantly be perceptive to identify any inconsistencies or anomalies.

As being a consultant is multifaceted, it’s important to be able to adapt to any technical or non-technical task you may be assigned.

Lastly, willingness to learn and develop as often you work with multiple systems and tools that require upskilling

I can wholeheartedly say the level of support you receive from Newtyne is unparalleled.

When representing Newtyne for a client there is a constant 1-to-1 level of support to ensure your progress with the client.

Furthermore, Newtyne provides an endless amount of learning material regarding both business skills and technical skills.

In addition, there is always a colleague available to answer questions or concerns you may have. Overall, the most rewarding aspect is working for a company that truly stands by their values and helps progress my career as a Data and Analytics consultant.
