Content is professional. I believe that McKinsey is adding to the already pervasive bias that men with British accent are infinitely more capable than without. For a company I look to to help dispel myths this feels like fuel to the fire.

True expertise

When I listen to this show I know I’m hearing from the very best business management experts who work closely with the most vital companies around the globe. The podcast production value is super pro sounding too. I like that the show has multiple segments including one that has a soft-skill vibe.
