So apparently my boss’s first and last name combine to make “Sauron” cause I just called a client at the request of my boss and left the client a message that “Sauron asked me to call.” Then I laughed at myself while still leaving a message. Anyone else’s brain constantly combine words? Or flip the first letters of two words? When I used to teach I once wrote “Jew Nersey” on the whiteboard instead of “New Jersey.” 🤦🏻‍♀️

Just received a SC offer from Deloitte in Ops Transformation and am looking for thoughts on upward mobility and exposure to senior leaders as a SC (both within project teams and clients). Additionally, thoughts on travel and impact on promotion if I ask to not travel often.
