Does anyone here do really well in presentations or formal public speaking (even impromptu) but fall flat in small tall? I swear I would be calm while being interrogated in a congressional hearing but put me in a 1:1 or other minor conversation and I bomb almost every time.

I’m fairly bad at both 🤪 but better at small talk

It’s me! I literally say the dumbest things during small talk, but can compose myself for presentations. I like to think it’s part of my charm now 🥲

Maybe I should just accept it. I like that, “my charm.”

I get like this. I think it’s because briefing/presenting relies on you driving the conversation and relating a specific idea or answer in your own words with your own knowledge while small talk is a 2-way, you need your own input, but have to take j to consideration the other half and utilize a different type of social awareness

I was a little worried about leaving KPMG for EY. But I just found out about their unlimited PTO policy. I'm so excited! What a thoughtful move on EY's part. I feel like they always care about their employees the most and differentiate themselves amongst the big 4. I feel like they can definitely swell the ranks now!

Spent 2 years as staff and 1 year as senior in the DSG program. I had various experiences in Private Clients (individuals), GCR (Corps), TARAS (Tax Advisory), and a little bit of International. I also had a lot of SALT engagements (compliance, sales and use, research, etc) and decided to officially move into the Indirect Tax group. I’m now a senior 2.

If I were to leave public, what are the typical types of exit opportunities for people specialized in indirect/SALT but wide a wide background?
