Welcome to my profile!

The reason I am here is YOU. Practicing cases can be daunting. It is easy to get lost in frameworks and conflicting information. The detailed-oriented mindset from university is a barrier to prioritisation and top-down communication. I will empower you to showcase your strengths and work on your weaknesses to succeed in your interviews!

I will briefly share my track record and the two approaches that define me:

1. TRACK RECORD

I am a 5 star-rated coach on Preplounge and another platform

I have a very busy schedule so do not have the time to market myself on the platform (e.g., post on the Q&A). I would rather give 1.15-1.5h/session to my coaching clients. I believe one hour is simply not enough to take you to the next level

The two approaches that define me are:

2. FIRST-PRINCIPLES THINKING

Did you know that management consultants used to be called "management engineers"?

As a research scientist by training, I leverage scientific principles to deconstruct business problems and unpack rules and relationships, regardless of industry. Through a first-principles approach, I guide my clients to ask fundamental questions to uncover these relationships, and assess their impact on the client's goal, rather than relying on pre-made models and frameworks. 

As I became a McKinsey consultant, first-principles and conceptual thinking gave me confidence and consistency as a problem-solver. As a coach, helping clients strengthen conceptual skills and approach problems with curiosity reduces the pressure for content memorisation. The interview preparation becomes more enjoyable and effective.

3. EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

It is possible to challenge a client’s thinking and boost performance whilst creating openness where sustained learning can take place. Although emotions play a decisive role in interviews, they are rarely discussed. I want to change this paradigm.

At McKinsey, I received very positive feedback on my ability to build strong relationships with clients. Emotional Intelligence has a special place on my agenda. I recently completed a practical course on active listening, which helped me connect with my clients and identify the subtle behavioural cues that impact performance.

Finally, I am a global citizen (speak four languages), bringing the global perspective sought-after in consulting. I really enjoy meeting talented and ambitious people from different countries.  

I have posted two MBB-style cases on Prelounge: COVID-19 vaccine and JimboTel. The COVID-19 case is already one of the top-ranked cases in Preplounge.

For the candidates without Business degrees, I have recently published a book covering everything you need to make a successful transition into consulting without having a Business background. Check it out!

Look forward to connecting!
