Natalie Bedworth

Senior Consultant

I had heard of Waterstons long before I joined the company. A friend first started as a year in industry student back at University, whilst I had joined a design agency. As we embarked on our work experience, through the following years, we regularly swapped stories, provided opinions and debated approaches to the topics raised. As the years passed I came across the name ‘Waterstons’ more and more, then an opportunity arose to join this company I had previously heard so much about and I haven’t looked back.

Since joining in 2013 I have been part of so many opportunities and worked with lots of people. No two experiences are the same, and the challenges each project throws up are so different, I really do learn and grow each day.

What I'm good at

My background is centred around Consultancy, Project and Account Management. Always at the heart of my role, has been the need to understand clients in detail to deliver successful solutions. Regardless of the context, I am motivated by business need and the improvements it can bring. I think this comes from being quite analytical and process orientated; I have to understand strategic objectives and ask ‘why?’ a lot! This has provided a good grounding in my delivery of projects, which have covered Gap Analysis, Due Diligence and Business Process Alignment.

My clients have been located across diverse industries; I find it a privilege to be in a position where I gain insight into so many different types of businesses. I love meeting and learning about any new organisations and believe cross sector understanding can often be invaluable in developing knowledge. It also allows me to fulfil my true passion for meeting people and building relationships. I’m a natural people person both in work and out.

My experience

I have helped clients review and define business processes, developed their requirements for new systems and helped to achieve solutions – be it procuring a new system or project managing the design and build of a bespoke one. As a business consultant I am driven by the business value and objectives so I find it interesting delving into organisations and exploring what clients want to achieve and why. The accompanying change management strategies and organisational alignment required to ensure success are also fascinating.

Outside of Work

Weekends are usually spent doing family beach walks with our black Lab Oscar. I also enjoy keeping fit and healthy, mostly through Pilates and running. It certainly balances out my other enjoyment which is good food and wine.
