Matt was fantastic in demystifying the casing part of the consulting recruiting process. Our sessions were immensely helpful in developing, and later refining, as well as pressure testing my casing skills. From breaking down the various elements to the case to determining ways to work on each part to strengthen the overall delivery, Matt provided insight and feedback that aligned with what firms seek.
