Joe has had a hugely wide-ranging career that’s seen him go from Academia, in to consulting and back again, with a number of additional entrepreneurial ventures along the way.
With such a varied career, and a unique mix of both practical and academic experience, Joe has a huge amount to share and gives so much in today’s interview.
When I say that Joe wrote the book on Management Consulting, I mean it very literally. His textbook “Management Consultancy” is the leading academic resource on our industry and is used by universities across the world to teach their students about consulting.
But Joe’s focus is more than just the academic side of the industry. Through his business Consulting Mastered he’s advised a range of consulting businesses – from boutiques to global leaders – on how they can improve their organisations to help them grow effectively. Insights that he’s currently building into his latest book and something we go in to detail on in today’s show.
We cover so many different facets of the industry in today’s conversation and there really is something in here for everyone, from Joe’s top tips for graduates looking land their first job in consulting, to the key insights from his upcoming book on what separates successful boutique consulting firms from their less successful peers.
I found this conversation fascinating and it was great to get Joe’s perspective as someone who truly knows all the ins and outs of the consulting industry.
Whether you’re a consulting leader focused on how you can take your business to the next level or a graduate looking to make your first step into the industry, I know you’re going to get so much from what Joe has to say.
