Curious about RESULTS? Click below and you will find 92 testimonials of the candidates I helped to get offers ;) With real screenshots, so you can also check all the dates as well.


If you have any questions drop me a message, I provide guaranteed responses in 12h, regardless of your time zone.


Note 1: besides standard classes, I also offer the GYM Program, the best-selling expert package on PrepLounge to land an offer with a 36% discount (please review below the full details of the program). Please PM before booking as I have few slots only available per month.

Note 2: I am also offering 1 only GYM Program Plus per month with 10 sessions at 49% discount - please see below the details.

Note 3: Would you like to know the questions asked at your target office in advance? I have 700+ real questions asked in 50+ offices. Please scroll down at the bottom, you can check if your office is there.

Note 4: I am usually booked one week in advance (the calendar below is not updated), but I may organize a last-minute slot if you are very close to the interview (i.e. scheduled in less than one week). If that's the case, please let me know you would need preparation asap and I can check that.


In the last 8 years I helped hundreds of people from 5 continents in consulting interview preparation.

To my surprise, I discovered that 80% of candidates do 2 major mistakes, right at the beginning of the case.

This was consistent between people with few cases done, and people with 100+ cases under their belt who read Case in Point and Victor Cheng, and spent hundreds of euros in coaching. Can you guess which they are?

Unfortunately, if you do one of these 2 mistakes, you are likely done with your consulting dream job career. Statistically, if you do not know which they are, you will do at least one of them.

That’s where I can help. I can lead you to identify the major mistakes you may do in your next interview, get additional invitations via referral - including MBB - and define the optimal action plan before the big day, based on your areas of improvement, so that you can get the offer you deserve.

The truth is, the mainstream material out there doesn't work anymore.

I almost failed my first round at McKinsey because I practiced on Victor Cheng and Case in Point only. After that, I decided to go through 150 cases to be sure I would not repeat the same mistakes.

I studied ALL the consulting prep material I could find available, online and offline. I then went through finals with McKinsey, Bain, Oliver Wyman and BCG, before choosing the latter.

You can now leverage in 1 hour the experience I gained in more than 3.700 coaching sessions, thanks to PrepLounge.




There is one single metric you should consider when choosing a coach: success rate.

83% of the candidates I coach with my GYM program move to the next round or get the offer, depending on what’s next. It’s not a round number, as I count every single candidate and regularly update it (and yes, you should doubt round numbers!). You can check above 1.300+ reviews with 100% recommendation rate that confirm that.

This is something you need to know before starting coaching with an expert, and I would encourage you to compare the reviews at the end with those of the alternatives you are considering, to better evaluate your investment.

Below you can find some additional statistics from my coaching you may find useful for comparison with alternatives:

  • 3.700+ certified coaching sessions on PrepLounge. Several coaches claim they have done hundreds of sessions. The problem is, they can't show any evidence of that. With me, you have them certified and guaranteed
  • 1.300+ reviews with 100% recommendation rate. All the reviews are available on this page
  • 72% of the people who booked with me one class booked additional sessions after the first. You can find evidence of that in the reviews on this page

Moreover booking a class with me you can have:

  • Referrals. A diversified network of hundreds of current consultants worldwide, previous alumni of my classes, to leverage connections and networking
  • Certified knowledge. Complete Q&A knowledge on consulting, certified by 2.000+ forum contributions on the PrepLounge forum and 17.000+ upvotes for them
  • Insider information. Specific information on McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Strategy&, Kearney, Monitor Deloitte, ZS Associates, Simon-Kucher, Delta Partners, ADL, EY-Parthenon, KPMG, Dalberg, IQVIA, Accenture Strategy, Booz Allen and LEK, thanks to the huge network of alumni of my classes

If you book the GYM Program, as part of the sessions you will also get $600+ worth of material for free.

Moreover, thanks to 8+ certified years of experience in coaching (you can check the 1st review date), I can be sure to provide the most updated information on recent changes in the recruiting process for top consulting firms.

Each month, I do 10X+ the number of coaching sessions of the average coach on PrepLounge, thus I get 10X more insights than the average coach.

Finally, as further proof of the coaching effectiveness, 9 current PrepLounge experts are people I coached. They not only landed offers, but managed to thrive and become experts themselves.

This means 2% of the best coaches in the world for consulting prep come directly from my training. There are no other experts on PrepLounge that have accomplished that. If you want to achieve mastery, you are welcome to join them ;)




Some of you may think “Francesco, how is it possible that I have to pay so much for your class? I can get it much cheaper from another coach!

Let me tell you a story.

Once upon a time, there was the owner of a large factory. One day, he got a problem with his machinery. All the production stopped.

The owner and the workers looked everywhere to find a way to fix the problem. No way they could find it.

Finally, the owner called a famous handyman in the town where the factory was located.

The handyman came, took a quick look, opened one of the machines, and changed one single screw.

Miraculously, the entire factory started working again.

The owner was ecstatic. “How much do I own you?” he asked.

“$10.000.” Replied the handyman.

“What? Are you crazy? You fixed a screw and it took you 1 minute to do it. How can it be so expensive?"

The handyman took a piece of paper, wrote a few words, and handed it to the owner of the factory. He read the note and paid him on the spot.

This is what was on the note:

  • Changing the screw - $1
  • Knowing which screw to change - $9.999

You will find many coaches who can tell you that your structure, communication and math are wrong and you should improve.

You will find very few coaches that will be able to explain why they are wrong.

You will find even fewer that will be able to explain exactly what to do to avoid that mistake in the future.

And you will find a handful that can do all that, and show evidence that what they teach works (such as this:

With one class with me, you don't get “one class”.

You get the knowledge I developed in 3.700 sessions, all condensed in one single class, and the proof that it works.

And that’s what you are investing in.




When we start coaching, my goal is not simply to provide you with a good one-hour training for consulting interviews.

My goal is that you succeed, whatever your specific goal in consulting is. As a consequence, you can expect:

  • NO TIME LIMIT. Our sessions will last until you are satisfied with all your questions and have received personalized written feedback on your performance - don't worry about the standard time limit.
  • FULL AVAILABILITY. I will provide you my personal number and will be available for you via Email, Skype or WhatsApp for last-minute doubts after the session, free of charge.
  • LONG-TERM SUPPORT. Even after the coaching, you can always reach out to me. We will work together until you have met your final goal. I helped several candidates to clear doubts, choose between multiple offers and negotiate terms - all for free.
  • AD-HOC MATERIAL. I will share with you extra material that you can use for the prep based on your needs, provide a plan for preparation between sessions and connect with my other mentees, so that you can be sure you are using the best possible resources and connections.
  • PERSONALIZED PREP. Unlike other coaches, I achieved my success rate with all the major consulting firms. You don’t have to worry about being prepared for McKinsey but lacking preparation for BCG. I will share the exact tips to land an offer, personalizing the preparation for your specific target, so far that is one for which I helped to land an offer: McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Strategy&, Kearney, Monitor Deloitte, ZS Associates, Simon-Kucher, Delta Partners, ADL, EY-Parthenon, KPMG, Dalberg, IQVIA, Accenture Strategy, Booz Allen and LEK. You can check below real testimonials of the candidates I helped: .




Below you can find what we will cover in one single class. If you prefer, we can take a single topic of the GYM or GYM Plus Program (eg PEI, MBB referrals, structuring mastery) and focus on that instead.

  • Full practice with a mock interview, either interviewee or interviewer led, according to the company you are applying to
  • Mistakes cleaning: the 2 major mistakes people do and how to avoid them

  • Review of math and graph analyses and how to optimize them
  • The best way to present your structure so that it always fits the case

  • Numerical score of your performance and benchmark with 1st and Final rounds pass so that you know where you stand
  • Differences between interviews at McKinsey, BCG, Bain and other top consulting firms
  • Bonus (if required): How to prepare for the BCG online case / potential test and McKinsey Imbellus, PST or SHL tests, with support material available for them to optimize your performance

Ready to structure the unstructurable? We will do exactly that in this session.

We will see how to perfectly structure questions like:

  • What are the main issues for a British multinational after the Brexit?
  • When and in which country will there be only electric/self-driving vehicles?
  • Brainstorm all the negative impacts of climate change that a head of state has to think about

(Which by the way are all real questions asked in consulting interviews).

Believe it or not, after this class you will look forward to these questions to showcase your structuring skills.

Can you imagine enjoying analyzing a graph in a case interview? You will probably do so after this session.

We will see:

  • The 3-step approach to correctly read every graph 
  • The must-know way to structure top conclusions
  • At least 3 mini-case examples to master the exhibits and recommendations

After this class, you will know exactly what to do and say with every graph and conclusion.

Fit counts for 50% of the interview, even if it is shorter. Many candidates neglect it, thinking it is "the usual HR questions - I went through that already".

Only to find later they got rejected.

It is not difficult to prepare for the fit part, but you need to be solid on it. In this session we will see:

  • The killing mistake in every fit interview
  • The detailed structure to crack the 49 most common fit questions
  • The 3 must-have questions at the end of the interview

After this class, you will know everything you need for a perfect fit performance at the beginning and at the end of the interview.

This will be the toughest session of the program. We will replicate a very tough interview under a stressful situation

We will see:

  • The hardest possible case interview you will ever find
  • Stress interview with steroids – will challenge all your assumptions
  • Very hard math that less than 1% of candidates ever managed to do right

After this class, you will be ready for every possible scenario.

In case you have to do a written case, we can cover it as well.

We will see:

  • How to prepare every single step of a Written Cases
  • Real examples of BCG, Bain, IQVIA written cases
  • Template to follow and best practices for the presentation to the interviewers

After this class, you will know exactly what to do to analyze the written material and to present it to the interviewers.

Math is scaring for many candidates – but there is no reason it should be so.

In this session we will see: 

  • The right way to structure any math problem
  • Practical tricks to make your math always accurate
  • Up to 3 mini-cases examples with complex math

After this class, you will be bulletproof on even the toughest math questions.

In this class, we will focus on the McKinsey PEI and its 3 key dimensions: inclusive leadership, personal impact and entrepreneurial drive.

In this session we will see: 

  • The #1 reason why your story will be boring for the interviewer and how to avoid it
  • How to build memorable stories that engage the interviewer from the beginning to the end
  • Why the STAR and PARADE structures alone are not enough to clear the PEI

After this class, you will have excellent stories for all the dimensions (including the new inclusive leadership one) and will be prepared for all the questions the interviewer may ask.

The 10 sessions together have a value of €5.090/$5.490, not including the material above, which, coming from 8+ years of experience and 3.700+ coaching sessions, I normally price at €1.100/$1.300, for a grand total of €6.190/$6.790.

I am offering now the GYM Program Plus at the discounted rate of €3.099/$3.299, with all the material for free, thus with a 49%+ discount.

I can offer one GYM Program Plus per month only. Please PM if you are interested and I can let you know if it is available.




I provide a 30 min session at 50% discount on the standard rate to understand how to exactly get referrals, directly from home – no events participation required.

You can also choose to do a full session, if besides referrals you want to have your CV and Cover reviewed so that they can stand out.

Following that process, I managed to get 6 invitations out of 6 applications – including all MBB – and I regularly see the people I help getting referrals from MBB.

Note: some people will ask you to pay money for a single referral – there is no need to do so if you know the right steps to get all the referrals you want.




The following are the cities for which I know the questions asked thanks to my mentees. Overall, I have a database of 700+ real questions asked in MBB and top consulting companies.

  • McKinsey: Amsterdam, Atlanta, Baku, Beijing, Belgrade, Berlin, Boston, Calgary, Chicago, Doha, Dubai, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, London, Manila, Milan, Munich, Nairobi, New York, Panama, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney, Taipei, Tokyo, Toronto, Warsaw, Zagreb
  • BCG: Amsterdam, Atlanta, Beijing, Berlin, Bogota, Boston, Brussels, Budapest, Chicago, Cologne, Copenaghen, Dallas, Dubai, Frankfurt, Geneva, Ho Chi Minh, Houston, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Manila, Mexico City, Milan, Moscow, Munich, New York, Oslo, Paris, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Taiwan, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Toronto, Vienna, Washington, Zurich
  • Bain: Amsterdam, Beirut, Boston, Brussels, Chicago, Dallas, Dubai, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Jakarta, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, London, Los Angeles, Milan, Monterrey, Munich, New York, Rio, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Washington, Tokyo

For other companies, please feel free to PM me.




To maximize your benefit, you should have already done some preparation on your own before the training (5-10 cases or 10-20h spent on preparation).

You should also have an interview scheduled with or be willing to apply to McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Strategy&, Kearney, Monitor Deloitte, ZS Associates, Simon-Kucher, Delta Partners, ADL, EY-Parthenon, KPMG, Dalberg, IQVIA, Accenture Strategy, Booz Allen and LEK. 

I only coach people targeting companies I helped to secure offers from. I want you to be totally sure the results are there.

We would need at least 2 days before your interview to do proper coaching. I would not recommend booking a class until the previous conditions are met, as we would not optimize your time and effort.

Before the session, I would also kindly ask you to send me a link to your LinkedIn profile or your CV as it will help to better structure the fit part, which is crucial for your success.




I am an entrepreneur and former BCG consultant.

After 3 degrees from Bocconi (Italy), MGIMO (Russia) and Barcelona GSE (Spain) I joined BCG in the Milan office.

After BCG I joined an angel fund in Berlin, where we invested in the newly born app space.

I then left the fund, founding my first company in Italy in the entertainment sector. I recently moved to Singapore and launched my second company in the EdTech sector.

During my career as a coach I have done 3.700+ interviews and Bootcamps in top Business Schools. I am currently the #1 expert on PrepLounge for Meetings.

There may be multiple reasons why you may want to join a consulting firm, but for many people, a key goal is to build one day their own business and/or be financially independent. I can relate to this very well, as this is what I also wanted to do and ended doing.

If that's interesting for you, I am always happy to discuss free of charge as part of the classes or after them:

  1. How to move from consulting to venture capital
  2. Must-know tips on how to start your own company after/during consulting and top mistakes to avoid (I have done more than a few and learned a few things in the process ;) )
  3. How to raise money from investors and/or bootstrap your way to profitability (I raised $1M+ for my first company and bootstrapping my current one)

I see the coaching I do not just a way for you to get into a top consulting firm, but to contribute to your long-term life goals as well, so you can always reach out to me to discuss the next steps in your career as well for free after classes.




Contact me today for any additional questions, I guarantee a reply in 12h.

You can write me in English. Oppure in Italiano. O en español, come prefieres.

You can also find above 1.300+ reviews of the candidates that I helped for further reference.

I look forward to helping you to land your dream offer!

Master the Skills to Get a Top Consulting Offer from the #1 Coach for Expert Sessions and Make your Dream Career Come True

●   Do you want to land an offer from McKinsey, BCG, Bain, or any other top consulting company?

●   Do you want to work on proven techniques without wasting time?

●   Do you want to get access to the information that just the top insiders have?

●   Have you read the standard books and methods, and you still didn’t manage to get offers?

●   Do you want to know the exact reasons why only 1% of the candidates get an offer from top consulting companies?


Are you looking for a program that:

●   Shares the ultimate way to structure any question you may get in a case interview?

●   Reveals the exact answers to fit questions that only insiders know?

●   Tells you the proven words to impress your interviewers in every step of the process?


After 3.700+ sessions, 8 certified years of coaching (you can check the 1st review date) and hundreds of people landing into MBB, I am ready to offer you the ultimate program to achieve all of this and more – the GYM Program. You will discover the secrets to master every step of the interview process.

The GYM - Getting You into Management consulting - covers all the key areas of a case interview.

Like a great fitness coach, it will offer you the right material and a step-by-step plan so that you can get the greatest benefit on the time spent preparing and land the maximum results out of your effort.

You won’t get just a bundle of 5 sessions. I will share with you my contacts and you can write me at any time if you have any questions, free of charge (I will reply within 12 hours via chat). If you join the program, we are in this together. We won’t stop until you get the offer you want.

This program is for you if you are targeting one of the following companies: McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Strategy&, Kearney, Monitor Deloitte, ZS Associates, Simon-Kucher, Delta Partners, ADL, EY-Parthenon, KPMG, Dalberg, IQVIA, Accenture Strategy, Booz Allen and LEK.

This program is not for you if you are targeting other companies. I only coach people targeting companies I helped to secure offers from. I want you to be totally sure the results are there.

After the GYM, 83% of the candidates I coach move to the next round or get the offer, depending on what’s next. It’s not a round number, as I count every single candidate and regularly update it. You can check above 1.300+ reviews with 100% recommendation rate that confirm that.

This is NOT a program that works for one single company only. You will be able to leverage what we will cover in ALL your interviews, regardless of whether it is McKinsey, BCG, Bain, or any other.

Below you can find 92 recent success stories that show that:




Whether you are an undergrad, MBA, PhD or experienced hire, if you have an interview with MBB or any of the companies above, the GYM will offer you the best possible preparation in the market today.

It works for every experience level - whether you have done 2 or 200+ cases, you can be sure to find value in the GYM program.

During the sessions, you will receive for FREE the following course material:

And here is what we will cover in detail.


✓ SESSION 1: Full Mock Interview - PEI/Fit + Case                                                                                                                                                  

This will help you to correct 40-50% of your current mistakes in communication and structuring for a specific case.

In this session we will cover the following and more:


● The 2 mistakes 80% of people do at the beginning of the case

● Why people formulate hypotheses in the wrong way and how to fix it       

● The 3 key steps to approach a graph

● The mistake experienced candidates do when approaching a math question

● The ultimate way to communicate a structure, so that it always fits the prompt


After the session, our next step will be to have you covered for all the frequent types of cases.

This session will last until you have received a complete feedback and all your questions are satisfied.

✓ SESSION 2: Case Structuring - Part 1                                                                                                                                                  

Do you feel you don't know how to structure operations or public sector cases? You are not alone. Many candidates struggle with that.

That’s because the approaches of Cheng or Cosentino don't work for these cases.

After the first class, we will move to the next level. Before the class, you will receive a set of questions to structure in advance.

We will then cover 3+ different mini-case types, out of those you found more challenging, and see how you can master them.

What we will see is far more effective than Case in Point or Case Interview Secrets. I optimized it based on thousands of interviews and it is NOT based on generic frameworks that everyone knows.

In this session we will cover the following and more:


●   Selection of the most challenging questions out of 25 prompts

●   The right way to structure at least 3 types of cases

●   Review of the typical 3 mistakes in communication candidates make

●   Solution drills: the key drivers to impress the interviewer


The type of cases will depend on your performance with the homework.

This session will last until we have covered at least 3 different mini-cases.

✓ SESSION 3: Case Structuring - Part 2                                                                          ​                                                                        

During this class we will complete the remaining common cases, working on 4+ mini-cases.

In this session we will cover the following and more:


●   Review of the challenging questions remaining from your homework

●   At least 4 main types of case structure

●   How to identify possible solutions

●   Fine-tuning on your communication


The type of cases will depend on your performance with the homework.

Once completed the session, you will know how to instantly crack 90%+ of all the possible business cases, and have the tools to crack the other 10% as well.

✓ SESSION 4: Market Sizing                                                                          ​                                                                        

Do you get stuck if you get a question like "How long did it take to build the Great Wall of China?"

What about "I am the Roman emperor and you are my general. How many soldiers do I need to conquer Great Britain?"

You can get questions like these in your final round, where cases are less structured - I actually got both questions myself in my finals.

That's why we will dedicate a full section to cover market sizing and how to avoid common mistakes (a common one is to say that your estimate is based on your experience – one of the typical no-no in market sizing).

Don't trust those that say market sizing is not predictable: there are 4 types of market sizing structures (and no, they are not the ones listed in Case in Point) and you should know all of them to be sure you have solid knowledge on this part of the interview.

In this session we will cover the following and more:


●   The 4 main types of market sizing you won’t find in any other book or guide

●   The one thing that impress interviewers the most in market sizing

●   The key numbers you need to know to avoid surprises in market sizing

●   Practical examples for each type of market sizing with solutions


Once completed the session, you will know how to instantly crack 90%+ of all the possible market sizing, and have the tools to crack the other 10% as well.


If you are preparing for McKinsey, if you prefer we can do a full session on the PEI (all 3 dimensions) instead of market sizing, given it is not that common for that firm. Please have a look at the GYM Program Plus under my description or drop me a message to check what we may cover for it.

✓ SESSION 5: Full Mock Interview - PEI/Fit + Case                                                                          ​                                                                        

In the last session we will cover a full case applying the knowledge of the previous 4 sessions, working either on:


●   A qualitative case + Complex market sizing, or

●   A quantitative case

●   If applicable: review of real questions of your target office (I have a database of 700+ real questions asked)


This will be a final round format, thus with more fit focus and pressure.

You can change this session with one completely dedicated to the PEI/fit, if you prefer so.


I structured the 5 sessions of the GYM so that you can maximize your performance in case interviews. However, the program is flexible and can be personalized in case you want to cover other areas - for example if you want a full session on the PEI (which we will cover anyway in sessions 1 and 5).

Say you are interested in any of the following:


●   Specific PEI/fit questions

●   CV and Cover review

●   MBB referrals

●   Unusual cases


We can then change one of the 5 sessions with that. You can review the GYM Program Plus under my description or PM me for a full list of the options.

The 5 sessions together have a value of €2.545/$2.745, not including the material above, which I normally price at €550/$650, for a grand total of €3.095/$3.395.

I am offering now the GYM Program at the discounted rate of €1.969/$2.099, with all the material for free, thus with a 36% discount.

I can manage a limited number of GYM Programs per month, thus I would have to confirm in advance the availability for the program for the period interesting for you. Please PM me for that.

If you are interested in more sessions, I also offer 1 only GYM Program Plus per month with 10 sessions at 49% discount. Please check my profile description or PM me for more information.

We can do the sessions in English. O se preferisci in Italiano. O también podemos hacer clases en español, como prefieres.

Feel free to contact me for any additional questions, I guarantee a reply in 12h. 


Would you like to do the full GYM Program at €1.299/$1.399 only (plus all the included material for free)

Bring a friend doing the coaching with you (2 people per class) and we can schedule the full 5 sessions at that rate per person

I can do one GYM Program only with this format per month, please PM me if you are interested to check availability.

UPDATE: Got offers from McKinsey and BCG in North America!
If you'd like more information about the GYM program from the perspective of someone who took it, feel free to contact me at
I would highly recommend the GYM program. I found it a very comprehensive and thorough training program. Comparing to other coaches, I think Francesco is able to give very specific, very actionable feedback. There were several suggestions that changed my perspective on how to tackle some parts of cases or fit part of the interview.
The program is also highly customizable and easy to extend if you want to do a little more (I did for example an extra session on "Unusual Cases").

I will say this upfront so people short on time can see this right away: the GYM program is absolutely amazing. I successfully received an offer from McKinsey's Greater China Office, and I attribute a large part of my current success to my sessions with Francesco.
My candidate profile might not be a typical one—if there can really such a thing as a typical candidate profile in consulting. What I mean is that I am an English major with very little training in business or anything else adjacent. My communication is decent, but everything else I basically had to start from scratch.
Francesco was very patient with me during our sessions, carefully explaining his structures but also the underlying logic behind them so I can customize if need be. To enhance my business skills and knowledge in general, he helpfully provided cheat sheets that he made himself. The one I found most valuable for me was the industry overview one where he basically went over 20+ industries in one ppt. When it came to cases, Francesco’s structures are unique as they are robust. They are truly nothing like the ones you can find on the internet, nor like the ones you find in Cheng or Consentino or the bschool casebooks. In the first-round interview, they helped me catch something very minute that I would’ve most definitely missed otherwise.
Another aspect of his sessions I found truly indispensable is the grading system that he uses to grade case performance. I believe people who are considering this program right now all know about just how good a quantifiable result is ?, and this is something Francesco offers, with different areas of breakdown for things like structuring, communication, math etc. I would highly recommend going through this rubric with him at the end of every single session, as it personally helped me pinpoint where my weaknesses were, and exactly what I had to do to fix them.
I recommend GYM wholeheartedly without reserve. I was lucky to have Francesco in my corner during my interview prep, and I think his services would benefit anyone who is looking to up their chances significantly with their interviews.

Update: I finished the program and received an offer from McK, still pending BCG final round. I found Francesco's BCG online case practice materials to be really helpful, especially given it's such a new process that there's virtually no reliable information out there.
I have had four out of five sessions of the GYM program, fairly close to my MBB interviews. I do recommend it for both the structured approach and the content. I also recommend getting started early as you can for the following reasons:
- the frameworks, industry cheat sheets, various supplemental materials are awesome, structured and very helpful if you feel at times unsure how to proceed. I'll give an example. The good old profit tree that everyone knows. I was starting to realize any profitability case worth its weight in gold as an MBB case has got to have a twist, and most of the time is some kind of mix issue. But I hadn't figured out how to build Mix reliably into the framework every time. When Francesco showed me his version of profitability framework it was clear that I found the answer I had been searching for. Can't share what is it but the first layer is not revenue and cost :)
The great content does take time to internalize, so getting in earlier is better, and you will be able to space out the five sessions and allow yourself time in between sessions to digest the content.

- Francesco's coaching is great with detailed written feedback and prioritized takeaways. He holds students to rather high standards. This is very helpful. He has thoroughly thought through the fundamentals to cover in case and fit prep, and offers a more systematic approach than other coaches. I feel with GYM the final stretch of prep became better scoped. The alternative was to cover as much territory as possible by running and reading cases, scouring the internet for fit questions, always wondering what else I am missing. It's stressful, and potentially not very productive.
With many coaches who don't have a course-based approach to coaching, the sessions tend to be fit+case+debrief. It's helpful but ad hoc in nature. All you hope for is that you hit the right fit question or case that identifies a blind spot or hits on an area of improvement.

- the classes are flexible, customized and Francesco definitely hears you out. I suggest thinking ahead of time about you're trying to get out of it, what casing component or fit questions need the most work, and use the time on what's most important to you. And definitely take the time to do the homework, yes there's a bit of homework if you want to maximize what you get out of the sessions.

I've purchased a 5-session coaching package from Francesco after careful consideration, as we all know that is quite a bit of investment. Turns out that it is so worth it!!!
In the first session, we did a mock interview. After that, Francesco provided me with very detailed feedback and practical tips to move forward. He is very patient and professional to explain everything clearly, with example sentences even. We spent almost two hours when a session should actually be around an hour. I am very thankful for his help and dedication. At the end, he shared with me a lot of valuable resources. The graph analysis cheat sheet and fit questions are super helpful.
Structuring good frameworks is my weakness and Francesco knows exactly how to tackle that. He gave me homework to draft frameworks to 25 cases. Instead of trying to sell me more sessions to go through some cases, he chose this most efficient and effective way which is to use 2 sessions to go through various structures so that we could finish everything within the 5-session package I’ve purchased. I love his frameworks. They are so concise and easy to use, which is something I could not find in case books or online.
Thank you so much Francesco. I’m so looking forward to our remaining 3 sessions.

I have recently completed the GYM PLUS programme with Francesco, and I have to say that it was TRANSFORMATIVE and WORTH EVERY PENNY. Before reaching out to Francesco, I had already done extensive preparation (~50 live cases as the interviewee, online courses, etc.) but my weaknesses were many: I still struggled at properly structuring my approach for certain case types and navigating the case, my fit performance left a lot to be desired, and I suffered from interview nerves. I ultimately got rejected in the second round with a boutique. My sessions with Francesco were absolutely amazing for the following reasons:

(1) Francesco's 2 'structuring' sessions and the 'unusual cases' session completely transformed the way I think about problems. Now, cases become extremely clear and intuitive for me (no matter how complex they may initially seem)

(2) The mock sessions are specifically tailored to highlight any weaknesses you have and to completely clean out your mistakes. Francesco ends every session by sending you a 2-3 page word doc detailing everything you did right and wrong in the case, and his feedback extends to all facets of your performance, including your verbal and non-verbal communication. The first mock highlights most of your mistakes, but subsequent sessions are still incredibly valuable as Francesco expertly pick cases with twists and nuances so you will still have a lot to learn.

(3) Francesco's market sizing session is unlike anything I have seen. I had previously thought that market sizing was my greatest strength, but Francesco taught me a more rigorous way of approaching such questions. This new way of thinking about market sizing problems will undoubtedly be very useful in final rounds where cases become more unstructured.

(4) Having done 3,200 sessions on PrepLounge, Francesco has likely heard thousands of stories and know how best to tidy up your fit answers. I had 2 fit sessions with Francesco, one focused on PEI-type questions and another focused on 'motivational' and 'ice breaker' questions. During the PEI session, Francesco helped me restructure several of my stories while polishing up the others. They are now much more intriguing then they ever were.

(5) Francesco goes above and beyond to make sure you succeed in your goal. His sessions regularly go above the 1-hour mark to make sure that he gives you detailed feedback and answer all your questions. He is also always available outside of sessions to answer any questions you may have, and to provide you with any additional materials you may need (be it practice tests or questions from your target office).

Overall, sessions with Francesco are absolutely worth it, and he will maximise your chances of getting an offer at your dream firm. I have upcoming interviews with one of the MBB and I am now very confident that I will make it through.
