Any advice on reaching out to a client about a role at their company? It’s not directly on their team but still within comms. Would like to avoid an uncomfortable situation (as much as possible) should they not think it’s the right role for me or should I not advance through the interview process.
Hey strategy fishminds - I’m planning a brand positioning workshop for a client with a multi-product portfolio of very similar technologies. Anyone got some ideas for engaging (virtual) exercises that can help them explore the differences between near-commodity brands? Think Bridgestone vs Goodyear or Rambler vs Topo Chico. Anyone done exercises for something similar recently? I need some fresh ideas.
For the past 2 months I have had trouble accessing any non-client or company websites. I thought the client was blocking me. Turns out it was "Websense" that the company installed that was blocking me

I have done in house executive leadership consulting and project management for a state health department for 3 years / all of COVID. I am physically and mentally exhausted from 6 months of non stop working (even though it has been great experience!) . Mainly reading / hearing politics of news or people makes taking pride on any of my work hard because all your hear are critics. Any advice on handling scenarios like this? Any advice on job searching to help other organizations strategically?

I hate my client to an unhealthy level. Literally fantasize about telling him what a fucking hack he is before quitting. Worst part is, he approves work that wins lions. Feel like a prisoner.
Anyone else currently dealing with the fact that their job/project is exacerbating the deterioration of their mental health?
Finished a big project a couple of weeks ago and I think it’s past an awkward amount of time of me having absolutely nothing to do. Should i be worried?
As a copywriter, I’m about to apply to a job that is more in the strategist realm. The reason I want it is because I’m intensely passionate about the client. Any tips to help sell my writing experience as a strategist? Anyone make this change and want to share advice?
“You’re too emotional when it comes to client feedback.” Well, yeah. After investing countless hours, weeks, months to a project I genuinely care about...how can I not be annoyed by shitty feedback?
Experts. There is an ask from client to measure a KPi 'synchronization measure from raw materials to FG' from planning team. They need my suggestion. Is it right to think about throughput time (processing time +inspection time+moving materials+Queuing time) or the other way of showing split up ( washing +cutting + inspection + freezing +packing materials). Pls suggest
How to give anonymous feedback in PwC? She is a senior, very loud & talks with her mouth full even on a client call. She swears & randomly shouts stuff like Killing it or Loving it. So distracting.
How do you handle a project manger that changes their mind constantly on how they want the work and deliverables done? I'm talking about changes that are not client requests just poor planning

Salary at age 25?
Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
