45 entering consulting? Not a good entry point - the ageism of being a BA or an SBA or even associate reporting 28 year old mgrs or 30 ur old Principal doesn’t seem right - I would start with a couple of case books and Victor Chang LOMS to gauge his current skill set prior to recommending next course of action

Why are you trying ? Are they interested at all in pursuing this ? I would suggest independent consulting to start with ,in a industry they were an entrepreneur

Terrible idea to get into consulting at 45! My two cents

What level would they be joining at? Does it ale even fiscal sense for them to be looking at partnership (if not already aiming to start as one) in the future? I’m just curious of course not knowing enough about how the partnership financials play out..

Why would someone willingly get into this shit show at the age of 45!

Thanks guys

Jeez Partner 1!! Punkass??!

With experience like that I think he would be a much better fit for a startup or maybe even a product firm. Consulting puts a lot of pressure on you and working with people 20 years younger and with fancy college degrees could put a lot of pressure on him. I’d be curious to know what he ends up doing. Good luck!

I just listened to an interview of a creative director recount their path towards copywriting at a famous ad agency. It could not have been a more textbook case of failing upwards as a white man.

It would seem the only thing you need to make it as an advertising creative is to have lots of not particularly original ideas. Practically every other skill is unnecessary. If you’re a white man.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.
