    Here’s something everyone intuitively understands. If you create a strong presence in your market and become recognized for your expertise, you’ve got a platform for growth. What’s less obvious is how to create that platform. I just read the newly released report, Visible Expert Research Study: Management Consulting Edition by researchers at Hinge that sheds light on how consultants can create a platform for growth. The Hinge Research Institute studied more than 530 professional services firms to understand consultants’ challenges and their top marketing priorities. The results point…

As an undergrad, a former MBB consultant once told me, “In the consulting hiring process, networking is everything.” Although his statement was exaggerated – yes, grades, alma matter, work experience, and a number of other factors still come into play throughout the hiring process – networking plays a more significant role than most realize in determining who gets a first round interview and later, in who gets hired.  As consultants…

True, true – many of you are dreaming about that coveted MBB job offer, with the prestige and lucrative lifestyle that follows. Rewind. You thought that getting the job offer is the end point, when in reality it’s only the very beginning. Because of this, we sat down with consulting veteran Lisa Bright (who is now part of the MC interview coaching team!) and asked a few questions about her time at a non-core school, breaking into McKinsey, and her early career to find out what McKinsey…

    Published – Gold Coast Bulletin, Gold Coast QLD  by Paul Mckey 23 Mar 2015 CREATIVITY, invention and inspiration are terms people associate with innovation. While they are correct, the brilliant moment, spark or idea is just the first step on the long road to market. When the boss says more innovation is needed in products or services, we rush for the paper and the coloured pens. After all, brainstorming is fun. But in business, where maintaining cashflow is the priority, most good ideas do not survive the reality of limited time and resources. Yet some simple steps can help ensure…

Now this question can be taken two ways: graphic design or process design. And if it is the latter that is worrying. Good design is at the heart of any business, whether it is aesthetic design,  business model design, customer experience design or product design. It is an ethos that a business must develop.

    People often ask me what is the best method for marketing online? – and the answer is: schmoozing! Or in marketing speak, customer referrals. Runners up were website and social. This research by Implisit points out what many suspect but were too afraid to mention – Trade shows, paid advertising and even Google adwords are nowhere near as effective as word of mouth/keyboard. The moral here? Luv thy customer. Even if you only have one, according to this, they will soon bring two. https://www.implisit.com/blog/b2b-sales-benchmarks/

Someone in all sincerity asked, “Hugh, how do you help someone that doesn’t want to be helped?” My answer will not address the alcoholic friend that needs an intervention. That’s not the type of situation we’re talking about. In a work context, if you have a friend or colleague that needs help but doesn’t want any help, what should you do? You should leave them alone. You don’t offer any help. You say, “you know what, if you ever need help…

    15 Apr 2015 | 6:55 pm
    To increase an individuals and teams performance there must be a desire, dream, hope or aspiration that fuels behavior. There is always a motivation and a payoff for behaving in the ways we do. For Bernie Madoff it seems to have been greed, and for Pope Francis it seems to be the desire to share the love, generosity and joy of Catholicism. Two different motivations produce two different outcomes. What motivates you can get muddled by the pressures of the world of work. But when you strip away the demands and pressures of the never ending to-do list, there is a hope, dream and aspiration that…

They are either choosing to raise the bar and move beyond the safe, known and secure in order to achieve memorable experiences for their customers, or, they are choosing to maintaining the status quo and rely on what has worked in the past. The first leads to heightened customer satisfaction, heightened employee engagement and heightened financial performance. The latter leads to complacency, mediocrity and underperformance.

    Start My Consulting Business - Ditch your day job. Make things happen. Change your life. On August 16, 1896, gold was discovered in the Klondike region of the Yukon, in northwest Canada. Over the next 3 years, roughly 100,000 people rushed there, hoping to strike it rich. (Yes, mining gold and consulting are a lot alike–stick with me for a minute and you’ll see). But getting to the Klondike was a brutal and dangerous ordeal. The most common route required hauling a year’s worth of supplies–literally 1 ton of food, tools, and provisions–on foot, over treacherous,…

In June 1978, the engineers who built the Citigroup skyscraper in midtown Manhattan got a call saying their building was at imminent risk of collapse.

If correct, the building’s collapse would cause untold deaths and destruction in the heart of New York City. When the…

    Think Again. If you’re like a lot of consultants, your plate is full. Very full. You’ve got projects to run, a business to manage, and a personal life. Sometimes, there’s just not enough time in the day. The natural reaction to the stress of being overloaded is to put off something on your to-do list. When you get too busy, you sort through your priorities and often it’s your marketing activities that you put on the back burner. Why? Because it’s an easy thing to put on hold.

Some days, I felt unbeatable. On other days, I secretly wished I’d followed my childhood plan to become a fireman.

They’re loud, things topple from shelves and shatter, cabinets swing open, the lights go out, and you’re left with a mess to sweep up. The worst part is that an earthquake always happens without warning. Of course, anyone who lives in California knows that we’re in earthquake country.
