Hi folks! First time posting in the fishbowl (nervous) 😬. I'm a creative who went into doing PhD management research, to find out how to increase creative output by improving client relationship & trust through service innovation. Do you have any advice on how I can approach the senior level (stakeholders) to do a research partnership?

Start on the client side and start with the clients that like being in the trades. They’re most likely to put energy toward something like this and request their agency to participate. I don’t see an agency pushing for it unless you signed on with Le Truc as part of their rollout.

How do you think a swap from MBB to big4 strategy would be viewed? Currently in a flagship office of an MBB and there is basically no strategy.

Contrast that to what I hear about big 4 strategy: lower hours and more strategy exposure as the crappy projects go to the other MC departments

Got asked today best way to gather our own (agency's) 1st party data.

No idea if this is right or there's a better way or where I'd start my research. Anyone want to point me in some sort of direction?

I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
