S2E30: Nicholas Farhi, Partner at OC&C Strategy Consultants
Dec 04, 2020 Season 2 Episode 30

Today's guest is Nicholas Farhi, partner at OC&C Strategy Consultants. Nic has been with the firm for 20 years, and has a wide gamut of stories - most of them hilariously articulated - about his consulting and leadership experience.

The multi-faceted conversation covers a lot of ground, including:

  • How to succeed in case interviews (hint: don't use jargon)
  • The importance of letting your people take ownership for the business
  • Why Nic turned down an offer to become CFO of KFC in the UK
  • Which type of consulting is more fun: strategy or implementation
  • The last time he properly danced
  • And much more

Enjoy the episode, and share with a friend or colleague if you found value in it!
