Manage episode 275093530 series 2803224
In this episode, Eugene discusses the value of seeking advice and help from mentors while at the same time lending a helping hand whenever you can. With an undergraduate degree in Actuarial Science, he expected that his career options would be limited to pension or insurance. Guidance from great managers and bosses exposed Eugene, early on, to the numerous paths available to him. He has had significant experience working at top firms across different geographies including the International Finance Corporation, Actis and Centum in England, Kenya and the US. He shares with us some of the lessons he’s learned over time which have helped guide his personal and professional successes. Eugene pays it forward by co-running a twitter handle where he posts on job and scholarship-related opportunities.
