Firmsconsulting maintains a 80% success rate at placing clients within McKinsey, BCG and Bain. This is the highest in the industry and the rate is higher if we include other firms. We achieve this rate because we only use former partners from McKinsey, BCG et al to develop our clients. This makes us unique. We never use analysts, associates, engagement managers or associate principals. We also carefully select and develop clients on their communication, image, technical and case interview skills. This podcast channel describes our lessons from training our clients.

    441: Why You Should Read Bill Matassoni's Memoir (Strategy Skills Classics)

    441: Why You Should Read Bill Matassoni's Memoir (Strategy Skills Classics)

    For this episode, let's revisit one of the classics by Strategy Skills where we discuss why everyone should read Bill Matassoni's book.
    Every now and then, someone comes along and makes the subject of management both fun and insightful. That’s what Bill Matassoni has done in his memoir—a combination of compelling stories and contrarian substance—that covers his forty-year career selling what he calls “ephemeral things.” In addition to the memoir, Bill plays host to a series of videos that are entertaining, irreverent, and filled with his conviction that marketing is the primary driver of progress in both commercial and social markets.
    MARKETING SAVES THE WORLD: Stories Why Capitalism Works. Bill Matassoni
