How to format a deck

Strategy is useless without the skills to execute. So many projects, years later, nothing at the client changed because they didn’t have the political will or ability to execute a strategic shift.

For those who’ve used TTP Verbal. Approx. how many hours did it take you to complete all lessons/get through the material? For additional context, Started studying 8/30 and I’m 33% through the Quant material (includes all readings, questions throughout the readings, and some of the “easy”practice tests. I have 7 weeks of studying left so trying to plan how much time I can leave for verbal. Thanks!

I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
