Work Experience

Hello! I'm excited to bring my experience as a Director at EY-Parthenon and Manager at KPMG to aspiring consultants on PrepLounge. My journey in the world of consulting has been enriched by diverse roles, from interviewing candidates at top consulting firms to spearheading fund-raising for startups.

MY EXPERIENCE

EY-Parthenon & KPMG: As a Director at EY-Parthenon I was deeply involved in the recruiting process. I've conducted numerous interviews, offering me a unique perspective on what firms are truly looking for in candidates.


Fund-Raising for Startups: Leading a successful fund-raising initiative has not only taught me the art of persuasion and pitching but also the importance of making a compelling first impression. These skills are directly transferable to consulting, especially when approaching potential employers, networking effectively, and selling yourself before and during your interviews.

Investment Associate at Manulife (John Hancock): My role involved in-depth analysis of companies, helping me quickly assess an organization's financial health and strategic challenges. This experience has been invaluable in consulting, allowing me to formulate accurate hypotheses and strategies before even meeting with clients. It's these analytical skills that I look forward to passing on to my mentees, helping them to excel in both case preparation and real-world consulting scenarios.


WHAT I OFFER

Case Interview Mastery: Leveraging my diverse experience, I provide unique insights into case preparation, teaching you how to quickly grasp a company's core issues and present your ideas succinctly and effectively.


Networking and Impression Management: As someone who successfully raised funds for a start-up (Pitched to PE, VC, Investment firms etc. in four countries), I'll share proven strategies on how to network successfully within the industry and make a positive, lasting first impression – crucial skills for any aspiring consultant.


Fit Interview Techniques: With my extensive experience in recruiting, I can guide you in presenting your story compellingly and authentically during fit interviews.


Real-World Insights: My diverse experience, ranging from investment analysis to startup fund-raising, allows me to bring a variety of real-world cases and scenarios to our sessions, enriching your learning experience.


MY APPROACH

My sessions are more than just practice interviews; they are tailored mentoring experiences. I provide continuous, personalized feedback and practical exercises, ensuring that you not only understand the concepts but can apply them effectively.

 

KEY ELEMENTS OF MY COACHING STRATEGY

  • Structured Problem-Solving: I teach how to break down complex problems into manageable structures, swiftly identifying key issues.
  • Developing Hypotheses: Guiding mentees on how to formulate and test hypotheses effectively.
  • Prioritizing Issues: I focus on teaching how to discern and prioritize the most impactful issues in a case.
  • Gaining Deep Insights: Training on how to delve beyond surface-level information to uncover first, second, and third-order insights.
  • Effective Communication: I emphasize the importance of clear communication throughout the case-solving process.
  • Synthesis and Presentation: Coaching on how to synthesize findings and present them in a compelling, concise manner.

BUSINESS ACUMEN DEVELOPMENT

In addition to case prep, I can offer crash courses to enhance business acumen across various industries (including non-profit and government sectors). This is particularly beneficial for those looking to improve their understanding of different business contexts and apply this knowledge in case interviews.
