Raj Cheema, KPMG

Raj Cheema - KPMG

Technology Consultant of the Year

Raj represents the future of technology consulting at KPMG; he is our role model for the next generation of tech consultants, demonstrating how to deliver outcomes for our clients, create long-term sustainable relationships, be values-led in delivery; constantly seeking to be better through new learning, all whilst remaining humble in his success.

Raj isn’t your typical tech-consultant. He discusses his work in terms of positive outcomes for staff, citizens, and patients of the NHS. That becomes the articulation of something very clean and simple that his peers, teams, and clients can understand and action.

Whilst this seems novel and ideological, it is the foundation of KPMG’s remarkable growth in Digital Healthcare Advisory. The trusted value-led consulting which Raj has overseen has led to Digital Healthcare Advisory growing by 73% last year, and it is predicted to grow by a further 97% in FY23. The outcomes delivered have been at the strategic and policy level with NHS England and Department of Health and Social Care, but also on the ground helping ICS’s and NHS Trusts deliver real outcomes for their staff, local citizens, and patients.

He does all this whilst staying true to who he is outside of work; regular trips to support his charitable work in India and Africa, food ‘pop-up’ kitchens, and teaching music at inner-city schools.  Raj isn’t afraid to share his story of socio-economic and dyslexia challenges in order to support other tech-consultants facing similar struggles, showcasing how this is a career they too can excel in.
