Too Old to start?

 
#1 Too Old to start?

JEI

I have had a corporate management career within the Petrochemical industry for some 20 years. I have recently achieved an MBA to support my practical experience. Am I too old to be considered for my first consultancy post at fifty.

As a senior manager you may have the right level of contacts and network to make introductions...and people pay money for that (you intro, project sale made, you get money, and you stay close to the client to ensure they are getting what you promised). This can be a great life. If this sounds like you, contact enquiry@appliedacumen.com to take it further.

I had a 17 year career in the unregulated electric power sector and was wondering the same as JEI. I am 43 and did two years in a top consulting firm at the beginning of my career so a little different. Recently attended an industry conference, met a Sr. Partner with a top firm and he wants to talk with me about being a senior executive advisor so there seems to be opportunity. JEI congratulations on the MBA, I am sure your fellow students received some great insights - wish you the best in your endeavors.

Exactly. Be wary for whom you advise, however. Whilst there's much made of "top firm" and "big 4" etc, I haven't met a client yet who hasn't felt 'burned' by same. Even if they have delivered as promised, clients still feel they've paid through the nose for it (which of course they have!). Just ensure you keep the reins to your contact, and that you ensure that whoever you 'advise' for (i.e. make intros for) really does deliver what the client wants. Again, If you're interested in fast unscrupulous bucks, go for a named firm. If you fancy promoting a fast rising star that really does offer something new, contact email referred above.
