Is traveling ever coming back to B4 advisory?

I don't see how it doesn't eventually come back, face time has traditionally been such a large part of what we do. I believe there will be a period of transition as we move back to our more normal weekly travel schedules.

Do you really want to be on the road 80% of the time anyway? Perhaps it returns to something more like 25-35% of the time which is reasonable for me

Probably more limited than precovid but my guess would be yes

I’m just an associate, but from what my SL leadership has said it doesn’t sound like most clients want us on site as much as pre-Covid. I think the scenario EY1 painted is much more likely - meet with client on-site for kickoff, big milestones, but do the majority of the work remote.
