Talent Talks What's Hot in Consulting - Types of Consulting
When talking about different types of consulting, Don Leslie, a management consulting recruitment specialist with over 30 years of experience elaborates: "When everyone thinks about consultancy, particularly at business schools, they always think of strategy consulting. Strategy sounds so interesting and it is but it's actually only a small part of consulting. But there are so many types of consulting: financial management consultancy, change management consultancy, etc. And not everything that these top tier strategy houses do is strategy consulting, probably only 30% of it is pure strategy. If you look at McKinsey's website for example, you'll see they have 22 different sectors where specialist give advice."
Don was also a Director of Beament Leslie Thomas (BLT) a consulting recruiter which acts for a wide variety of UK based management consultancy firms, working on search, retained and contingency recruitment. Don has 30 years of experience in recruiting strategy and management consultants with BLT, and he is now an independent adviser to Business Schools and Universities, MBAs and others, on careers in consultancy.
