Introduction

I am a London-based BCG consultant, with 7+ years of work experience, 2.5+ of those in consulting. Prior to BCG, I have been working in Goldman Sachs, so can provide investment banking perspective for candidates split between the 2 career paths. I have trained myself through Preplounge, utilizing the site's materials and coaches, and I am a core member of my office's consulting recruitment team where I provide prep & support to candidates interviewing for BCG.

My structure & approach

As a case coach, my preparation approach is structured as per the following: 

  • Free 30-min introductory section: I offer a free 30-min introductory session where we can discuss your goals/target firms, level of preparation, interview timelines and discuss preparation strategy based on your personalized situation. During the session, I will highlight how I can add value and help you prepare and you can decide whether you want to have additional paid-for sessions with me
  • Required frameworks: During our sessions, I will share with you the frameworks that I have created which should help you solve any cases you might encounter during consulting interviews. I only believe a limited number of frameworks are required, which should be flexible enough to be adapted in the specificity of the case at hand. With me, you can master the following:
    • Market sizing (e.g. top-down and bottom-up revenue estimation and/or growth for specific products/services)
    • Profitability (e.g. price, volume, cost changes)
    • Business situations (e.g. market entry, introducing new products, responding to competition, responding to demand change, M&A)
    • Specialized cases (e.g. operations, public sector)
  • Fit interviews: Cases studies are definitely important, but fit interviews also count for 50% of the interview evaluation. In my first MBB attempt I have succesfully solved the cases myself, but failed to receive an offer because of my fit interview, so I know firsthand how important that is; I can help provide qualitative frameworks on how to prepare and structure questions for fit interviews and can help practice them together to help with what consulting firms are specifically looking for. We will structure personalized fit interview answers, based on your individual circumstances
  • Consultant thought process: I have successfully passed interviews from 2 MBB firms and I am a BCG consultant myself, so can help to break down the typical consultant behavior, consultant "lingo" and in general how to think and act like a consultant. It is very important to make a positive first impression and be presented as "consulting material" given you will be representing the firm in front of clients from day 1
  • From Industry to Consulting: I was in Goldman Sachs for 4.5 years prior to joining consulting, and can help provide you with perspective of the practicalities of moving from industry to consulting, how consulting firm expectations differ for industry experienced hires and my personal experience on what are the consulting groups to target for and how to make your ultimate transition easier. Furthermore, I can help provide real life answers to the centuries-old question "Investment Banking vs. Consulting" to help you answer that for yourself
  • Prepped through PrepLounge myself: I have utilized PrepLounge myself to study and prepare for consulting interviews, have used help from PrepLounge coaches and also practiced with other candidates I met here. I believe the PrepLounge resources available are world-class and if utilized correctly can assist you in your journey to receive an offer. I can guide you through how to best utilize the available PrepLounge resources to maximize your chances of success
  • First-hand personal  experience: I am currently in BCG, and supporting & prepping interview candidates as a member of my office's recruiting team. Furthermore, I have recently prepped myself through PrepLounge and received 2 MBB offers. I know what MBB and other companies are looking for.
  • Connections: I am well connected with MBB, Accenture  and other strategy consulting companies across the world. I can help put candidates in touch with my network who can provide referrals and insights into the types of projects, culture and ways of working
