Given that I've been able to gain a lot of insight through this forum I figured it was time to give back.

Quick background on me:
- I went to a non-target school in Toronto
- Went from academic probation (less than 2.0 gpa) to graduating with a 3.6 GPA (in yrs 3/4)
- Joined a top Tier Strategy Consulting firm
- Promoted yearly, exited after 4 yrs.
- Joined a fin-tech company to run strategy -> it later sold to a large card brand
- Joined a SaaS tech company as a Director to run corporate strategy
- Total YoE = 6

Ask me anything, I'm happy to be as candid as I can be about my journey here and what's next.
