- If it is a case practice event - be ready with cases. Many events have the group cases and you can shine if you are prepared more than the average candidate
- Have in mind interesting questions to ask. Skip the boring / negative ones are career growth or work hours. Ask the smart questions about different industries and the future of the consulting
- Do a lot of networking after the event. Write a thank you note to the consultant or even approach him later to practice a case.
