My approach

WHO I AM

I am a former Oliver Wyman consultant in Dubai, with 3 years of consulting experience. I am currently working as Head of Strategy in a leading European AgTech company. Since my masters at the University of Chicago, I mentored 100+ candidates with a significant number of them receiving offers from MBB and their target companies.

As a New York attorney, making a career change to strategy consulting was not easy. I did not have the business school background when preparing for interviews and had to start from scratch. If this is your case, I can help.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHY ME

There are many reasons why I could be an ideal mentor to you:

  • Personalized approach: We will spend time before the session together to better understand your background and your key improvement areas.
  • First-hand experience: I have interviewed candidates from all backgrounds, and I was part of the recruiting team at Oliver Wyman.
  • Real life cases: We will work on cases I have created based on real-life interviews as well as projects I have worked on at Oliver Wyman.
  • Value for money: I am well aware of your budget constraints, and I will be happy to discuss with you a solution that works best for you.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MY APPROACH

Having mentored 100+ candidates, I have fine-tuned my approach which will help maximize your chances to get a job offer from MBB and other consulting firms. Whether you have just started practicing now, or have some previous case study experience, my approach will help you identify and improve your weaknesses and play on your strengths.

Think like a consultant

During our sessions, we will learn how to think like a consultant. This is a lot more important than learning frameworks. Interviewers will test how you think, not how much you know standard frameworks. We will make sure that you get to the level of a top performing entry-level consultant at MBB.

Nail all cases with a minimum number of frameworks

By solving 400+ cases before getting a job offer, and mentoring 100+ candidates, I truly believe that we could address the most common types of case studies by practicing the following:

  • Market sizing (e.g. max revenue estimation for a specific product/service)
  • 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)

During our sessions, I will share with you my recommended structure for each type of case. As they are very intuitive, you will not need to worry about memorizing any of them.

If you are an advanced candidate, I will be more than happy to assess how you solve these types of cases and improve your thinking aligned with my recommended approach.

It is also essential to be familiar with certain aspects (e.g. revenue streams, main products, consumer behaviour, logistics) of main sectors (e.g. banking, insurance, consumer goods, energy, TMT). I have adequate material and knowledge to guide you through this as well.

Show that you are a good fit

Some people neglect how important fit interviews are. This is the moment when you will make a first impression. Having the “consultant-ready” attitude is a must to receive offers from top consulting firms. The interviewers will be looking into understanding how ready you are to represent the company in front of a client. I have seen many times applicants fail to get an offer even though they crack the cases. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT WILL I PROVIDE YOU?

If you decide to work with me, I will provide you with the following:

  • 100% personalized preparation, tailored for you
  • Initial discussion to better understand your background and needs
  • Fit interview tips
  • Market sizing question
  • Full case study – difficulty/sector/topic selected based on your needs
  • Q&A session
  • Performance tracker to assess how you are improving over time
  • Connecting you with the colleagues from your target company and office
  • Casebooks and my recommended cases for your homework (FREE)  
  • CV/Cover Letter review (FREE)

I will be more than happy to be part of your journey and will make sure that we maximize our chances to get the offer you deserve! Please let me know if you have any questions.
