Thanks!

Anyone here do the part-time MBA at Booth or Kellogg? Would love to chat about your experience. Thanks so much! Stay safe out there.
Sometimes I'm really worried I don't know what I'm doing with my life. I am in risk assurance and have my CISA. Thinking about CIA for next cert but honestly have no idea what's after B4. Help??
Did the "write an idea down that would get you fired" brainstorm w/ a big pharma client. You know, then exchange with others & turn into a positive. Went well, laughs plus a few solid campaign ideas.

Partners! I'd like to ask how you differentiated yourself from other senior managers. I get the basic stuff, sell, work hard, client relationships etc, but I'm assuming there are many SMs that boast the same trait. Keeping the obvious aside - what's that oomph factor to reach the pinnacle ?
Starting to engage in more conversations with recruiters for job opportunities. When asked what range I should go for, what should I say? Currently an A2 that was up for Senior, but didn’t get promoted because of Covid. Base is 65,000 and I live in Texas.
