Aligning Values and Career: My Path to BrightWolves

Written by Lucas Becker


Following two rigorous years of preparatory classes for top-tier institutions, I was fortunate to join ESSEC, one of France’s premier business schools, and graduated in 2020. My initial professional experiences included two years of internships focused on both internal and external strategy, leading to the commencement of my career in 2021 at a strategy consulting firm in Paris.

After two and a half years, I found myself seeking a change. Strategy consulting, though invaluable, no longer resonated with my career aspirations. I desired a fundamental shift and a deeper alignment with my values, particularly concerning environmental issues. This period marked a pivotal personal transformation towards environmental activism and a desire to integrate my professional endeavors with my principles.

At this critical juncture, I was introduced to BrightWolves. Joining as an Engagement Lead (Senior Consultant), I quickly recognized a profound commitment to environmental issues, both in our client engagements and within the office culture. The level of collective consciousness here is unparalleled compared to my previous experiences. This commitment was key in my choice.

From a career perspective, BrightWolves has afforded me the opportunity to develop essential sustainability reporting skills in LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) and CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive), while continuing to engage in business activities that reflect my past experiences, particularly through the educational exercise of commercial due diligence. This blend has provided a perfect balance.

In essence, BrightWolves epitomizes the fluidity of projects and the people. It offers the opportunity to grow in individual areas and to develop both professional expertise and personal skills, notably through the Engagement Leads development program, the FCL (Future Consulting Leaders program).

Finally, even if at start it seemed quite strange, the company culture is very inclusive: employees can express their opinions without judgment, which greatly improves interpersonal relationships and promotes a culture of respect and speaking up.
