@SM1, in my experience clients often think they know better than we do cause they’ve written copy for social posts before or they’ve boosted a FB post before. They don’t in most (if not all) cases, but that doesn’t stop them from thinking they do. But I’m approaching that from a client-agency perspective! Obviously internal conversations will be a little different.

Look very puzzled, and say "why do you think that?" Because if it is not about data or hard facts, they may have a different experience than you. Or say "Well, in my experience, this is what usually happens ..."

Geez. Now I know what you all meant when I said xyz 😂😂💛

But what if it’s a situation where you can’t reference data?

How are you backing up that they don’t know shit then? @SM1 You have to somehow show that you’re right, they’re wrong. Data is the best way to do it, otherwise it becomes a he-said, she-said situation.

Thats an interesting insight, but process usually calls for xyz / and we can look into it / but let’s take a minute etc

Depends...role, title, reputation-

That sounds familiar, instead...

Marcel is the answer!

At this point how do people feel about police unions? Are they inherently bad bc they promote interests of the police v the people they serve? Would same apply to teachers unions (and is there systemic racism in teaching we need to dismantle)? Are public sector unions bad?

Accenture has 5 days time to accept or reject the offer letter, correct?

What if I accept the offer letter but do not join them as I'm having more interviews in other companies. And during notice period I want to try for better offer.

Will it impact that I will not be able to apply for Accenture again in future?
