Today’s interview is one that’s been a while coming, having recorded it back in August and I can assure you it’s been worth the wait.
I’ve had a number of listeners ask for more guests from the strategy end of consulting and I always try my hardest to give you the guests you want.
Today’s guest is Jess Frame, Partner and Managing Director at Boston Consulting Group.
Jess was introduced to me by former guest Lyndsey Oliver after I asked her for recommendations for inspirational female consulting leaders that I could interview for the show.
Jess has had a fascinating career that’s taken her across two continents and seen her move out of and back in to consulting, not once but twice. Having left consulting to work for Tesco she went on to run two multi-million pound businesses before going back to consulting as Partner and Managing Director in BCG’s Retail and Consumer practice.
Jess was a brilliant guest and we had a great time recording this interview. In today’s conversation we cover so many important and impactful topics in including:
Planning your career and how moving out in to industry can actually help you progress within consulting.
Understanding why you’re pursuing the career you are and the questions you should ask yourself before committing to the road to Partner.
Jess’s advice to junior consultants looking to set their career up for success.
And Jess’s take on diversity in consulting and what the industry needs to do to improve it.
I really enjoyed this conversation with Jess. Whether you’re male, female, just starting your career or have already made partner, I know you’ll take a ton away from this and I hope Jess inspires you just as much as much as she inspired me when we were having this conversation.
