Why would I tell you that? Lol

likefunny

Because we're peers and it's highly unlikely that we are in direct competition with one another. I always try to get answers to their questions that might not have anything to do with my role in their plan. Example a client mentions that they're not sure when the best time to submit their pension paperwork, I write it down and call them the next day with an answer. It's a question they weren't really expecting me to tackle right away and when I call them they think "oh wow he remembered that and followed through on that for me". I try to focus on some of the little things that go a long way

Attention to detail LOL, was that a test?

likefunny

It’s the detail to attention. Believe it or not a personal note in a birthday card, a skype call to wish them a happy birthday or a call. One client I called..his wife had forgotten and I was the only one that called him. I was in New Orleans and didn’t realize they had a WW11 museum. Number 2 in the nation. I have a veteran that is proud of his military family, I emailed him and told him I had thought of him. Sent him link and details. It’s the emails that I send out with interesting article on a stock they own or bitcoin that a client asked me about.

Lol

Good grief I was at a stop light and quickly typed and now I can’t edit! 😂🤣

Been approached for a management consulting role in procurement/supply chain. The role seems very interesting, however can anybody shed some light on what it’s like working in that kind of role (specifically for M&A services)? I’ve been advised exit opportunities would be to stay in procurement or go into Commercial Finance? Thanks!
