Corina Callan

Despite leaving university with a first class honours in Computing, I was still unsure about purely programming roles. Now, reflecting on a career spanning more than ten years, I am hugely appreciative of the journey I have been on.

Starting off in Belfast as a junior developer providing software for the Irish insurance industry, I learned the key skills that were going to set me up going forward. With great ambition, I moved to England where I started a role in email marketing and lead generation software, building on those skills.

My next role, at a Digital Agency called Draw, really shifted my mindset on what I could achieve in my position. I quickly grew into a leadership role and expanded my development team into a large, strong capability across multiple locations. Within my role, I helped influence company direction and was instrumental in the growth of the business and the smooth acquisition by Oliver Wyman.

Currently at Oliver Wyman Digital I run large complex projects, leading cross-organisational engineering teams in multidisciplinary environments. I am recognized for my ability to navigate difficult situations, identifying gaps for improvement and challenging my teams to change where needed. I am passionate about diversity in tech and not only co-lead the London Women of OW resource group but have co-founded the Digital chapter, leading the development stream and hosting various popular learning sessions for my peers.
