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.

Not just for aspiring consultants

This podcast is great for anyone that wants to think more effectively, solve problems, engage others in a professional manner, and especially for those who work at any level in business. In other words, this is for nearly everyone. I expected this to be a podcast strictly about case interviews but was delighted to find so much content that applies to business in general and conducting oneself professionally. The title of the podcast and brief description may actually do it a disservice because this has a much broader appeal and is far more interesting than those would suggest. Cheers to Michael.

Tremendous Podcast!

Great podcast! I have listened to every episode thus far and Michael does a great job of sharing his unique insights about management consulting.

Great Podcast

Extremely informative podcast broken down into bite size segments that are easily digestible. I really like the specificity of each episode; it's very easy to navigate the large number of available podcasts and find a relevant/interesting topic.
