"How to avoid the pitfalls which 90% of case candidates fall in"
(1) Intro. Just what do Consulting Firms do, what do they look for in
candidates and how do they test it? Who I am.

(2) Communication and leadership questions. How can you tell a story
that convinces the listener you have an attribute? Which attributes
do you want to convince the listener of to begin with?

(3) Communication and analytical questions. How do consulting firms
want you to communicate case solutions? How can you acquire these
skills?
