So, with the whole SCOTUS thing being done. I again ask the questions. Whats the value of keeping the union together? We have a radical fundamentalist minority who contributes little to nothing but get to make choices on behalf and against the wishes of the majority of the country. Whats the value for states like New York, Illinois, and California to remain in an union with states like Kentucky, Missisipi, and Missouri?
I knew a colleague last year that had to call on their union lawyer and make a case. I don't remember the details, but I know that they were glad they joined the union in the first place.

Hello Fishes. I have received positive feedback from KPMG interviews for consultant position and have submitted documents.

Has anyone faced such delay? Or Is it something I should be concerned about?

Friday thoughts on Strengths vs weaknesses: I have been told that I am solid in quant, but need development on the creative side of things - brainstorming, strategic frameworks, maybe even writing. If this situation can be improved, what should I do? books or videos or exercises? This doesn't seem easy to tackle at all... If this just reflects how I am like, does it mean I'm not fit for consulting in the longer haul (looking at SC, PM max)? Or perhaps I should focus on DD type of consulting?

Creatives, let’s talk creative briefs. I recently attended a webinar with Rosie Arnold (ex ECD BBH). Someone asked “What do creatives want from strategists, what does a great brief consist of?” Rosie said to keep it dead simple and that actually, a smart insight, can throw a creative and the process and that it’s better to just have a simple one. Question: What are your 2 top tips for a creative brief? - addressing one GOOD (to adopt or consider) & one BAD (to change or avoid) —— Note:
