With a background in the energy industry and an MBA from the University of Toronto, Patricia Mitton is a Manager in the Nous Toronto office. At Nous Patricia is supporting a major Canadian university on a large-scale service transformation.
A typical day at Nous often involves:
Genuine, innovative, dynamic.
Joining Nous' Toronto office offered a unique opportunity to work and learn in a fast-paced, start-up-like environment while having the experience and support of an international management consultancy to draw on. I have the agency to make valuable contributions to client work, internal projects, and supporting and growing the team.
Nous is genuine and inclusive. It's a place where you can feel comfortable being yourself. Nous has a strong collaborative culture where diverse opinions and perspectives are welcome and respected.
I knew I'd made the right decision to join Nous within the first few weeks. In that time I met most of my colleagues and learned about their diverse and interesting backgrounds. I also got a sense for how genuinely kind they are. I learnt about Nous’ impactful projects and was able to get to work right away on an interesting proposal with a team that blew me away with their energy and creative approach.
Everyone at the organization is very down to earth and networking at any level across Nous is easy to do.
Nous offers ample opportunities for career progression through online learning, organized training sessions, constant feedback, project work, and mentorship programs. However, I've found the greatest opportunities for professional development at Nous come directly from colleagues, who are always looking for ways to help me focus on projects or tasks that will build my skills or knowledge in specific areas.
Being around so many Australian accents has had such an influence on me that I (embarrassingly) started saying "How ya going?' instead of "How are you?" at the start of meetings!
