Alright, and any particular skill sets? Both hard and soft skills.
Of course financial knowledge is necessary, but what are some of the key features that one may overlook but is quite important to consider?

I have over 12 years in B2B sales/sales management experience along with a graduate degree. I am wanting to shift gears and I am at a point where I can invest time in myself to learn through practical experience. The new industry I am wanting to pursue is real estate investment. I have read all the books but want some hands on experience on the property management side. How could I best leverage my skills for a role in this, and what should my expectations be for negotiation in compensation?

Was told that I need to add "my unique touch" to my ideas... Something that when people see it, they can tell it's from me. Which is really strange to me cuz I've been trained to be invisible, to take on the brand voice. How do you find your "touch" ?

Does Boston Consulting have an M&A and Private Equity Practice? Based on company webpage this is not quite clear…perhaps it is not a main focus as it is with, perhaps, Bain? Or the competencies are integrated within the practices of BCG?
