EY is my first response. If asked for additional details then I’ll talk about EYP, what we do, M&A etc. i handle these questions same way i provide details about my job. If some rando person while I’m out shopping asks. - “I work in computers”

I'm into buying and selling of companies 🙃 Where I work comes much after.
