Theres usually a happy medium: "realize I have a lot of client knowledge/ rapport, interests lie elsewhere, can we consider a transition in a few weeks/ months while we line up someone else?"

I've done it. Hurts your perception and year end but it will get you off doing that kind of work.

Agree with A1, just make sure the replacement is doing well and impresses the client. I've seen clients get cold feet with new resources and force project managers hands in keeping the old ones. A smooth transition is something that can look good for you at year end.

Good points. I worry that I have too much legacy knowledge for them to want me to leave, was one of the few that wasn't asked to leave after phase first phase and am already project crutch. Just don't know how to doing to engagement leadership that I want to leave when I've been doing well and the rest of them are in the thick of it too

It's called fucking client management!!! Not yelling at you Op just venting. good leadership can manage transitions....

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts. At the end of the episode, an ad comes on for a former client. They were promoting an idea I had almost two years and one agency ago using the idea’s original name. So, I look it up. The words used to describe it are basically the words I wrote to sell it. They even got the talent we proposed in the initial decks to sign on. The big difference is the medium it’s delivered in. So, claim it or let it go? FWIW: It won’t make my book any better.

Full time I’m in digital but I’ve been working in my spare time with an early-stage data privacy startup. A client from my day job would be a perfect fit for the privacy tool (we wouldn’t be in it for the money, we’d likely give it to them for free to have the client in our portfolio and get their feedback, I just think it would solve a problem they posed to us), but I can’t see an appropriate, professional way to bridge that gap. Should I just leave it be, or try to connect those dots?
