New short talk: Consulting scores high on 2 out of the 3 criteria of Greek definition of happiness

I wanted to share with you a talk about consulting careers that I was invited to give by a large non-profit that promotes entrepreneurship and business networking.

I'm aware that many of us are influenced by family and society to choose a career based solely on either practical considerations (e.g., salary, job security) or idealistic ones (e.g., purpose). In this talk I sought to develop a more robust hybrid approach to evaluate a career option based on the Greek definition of happiness frequently referenced by John F. Kennedy as guiding his decision to enter politics. One highlight shared is research from executive search firms on the most frequent consulting exit opportunities and salaries.

Before you decide whether to watch the 26-minute talk, you can quickly skim the slides here: PDF of slides.  The talk is available on YouTube at this link. Thanks so much for your support and I'd love to hear your thoughts!
