Not exactly the same IMO Key points are the few messages most important to the story you're telling Key takeaways are the few messages most relevant to the audience you're telling the story to

I had a manager as I was coming up through the ranks who never let me use the word "key". Point being, if it's not an important takeaway, why are you putting it on the slide at all? They're just takeaways. I personally could not care less about these types of pedantics, but some do.

I haven’t used “takeaways” ever since I was on a project with UK clients and in response to that word, they laughed and asked why we were so concerned with ordering dinner. Apparently in the UK, takeaway is literally a to-go food order

Have an offer that pays ~$350-450k a year, but is very bonus heavy and about 25% of that or more will be restricted stock and options. Making ~$350k now all cash. And the way it’s structured, in the first year I’ll end up being ~$50k short for the year of where I would be if I stayed. Also requires a big move to a location I’m not too keen on. WLB is better, probably 50 hours a week but need to be plugged in 100% of the time. Any considerations I haven’t really thought about? What should I ask?
