The moral of the story: I dont have to oblige myself to get into the weeds of what his expectations might be, but rather spend a few mins to setup a game plan to tee up our session for next week. #Essentialism

Let’s talk Davos. Have a client who wants a speaking role, but I know an invitation is required. Advice on how to crack this nut? Yes, I am working with them on crafting an airtight message, and in a previous role they have spoken at Davos in the past, so it’s not out of reach.

Hi all! Would anyone know how safe Park Hill is? I'm specifically looking at MLK Jr. Blvd, about 5~10 blocks east of Colorado Blvd, near the City of Axum Park. I was told to steer away from Five Points, but I couldn't find much about Park Hill online. Ideally, I'd like to commute into downtown via public transit 1-2 times a week, so any insights into Denver buses would also be greatly appreciated!

This is a question for the auditors in public accounting firms. Do you know if there’s been any discussions about PA firms pushing back on clients filing deadline because of staffing shortages?

Serious question: I’ve worked in MBB, Big 4 and tier 2, and the number one reason I’ve heard for younger (less than 5 YoE) talent leaving is that they are “not doing strategy work.” It’s also the top request from younger staffers to do on every engagement team I’ve led. The question: Are there any consulting firms really letting new talent do this? Or is this the top delusion of new MBAs entering the consulting world?
