As a public tech company, Twitter has had a rough go of it. Since going public in November 2013, it's gone through CEO upheavals, a $30B rollercoaster like swing in market capitalization and endured endless take over speculation.
But amidst all the chaos, Twitter remains the unrivaled destination to get unfiltered, honest takes from the movers and shakers in any industry - from folks like chef and Top Chef creator Tom Colicchio to Fortune 500 CEOs like T-Mobile's prolific Tweeter-in-Chief, John Legere.
So what? In the world of management consulting, it's no different. If you look in the right places, you can get a wealth of information and content coming directly from the figureheads, rainmakers and leaders of the elite management consulting firms like McKinsey, BCG and Bain.
In this post, we'll do all the heavy lifting for you. This is our first in a series of must follow consulting leaders, where we'll focus on certain firm, industry and function intersections and highlight the "must follow" accounts. Today, we'll start with an exciting intersection: technology focused McKinsey partners.
What's our methodology? We look at a number of factors including, but not limited to, depth of tweeted content, frequency of tweets, follower base and quality of content.
Hugo is a leader in McKinsey's Business Technology (BTO) and Telecom, Media and Technology (TMT) Practices and the Global Leader of the McKinsey Digital Labs. We love his feed for it's constant stream of updates on disruptive technology trends, like what the classrooms of tomorrow will look like, and it's penchant for tying in sage McKinsey advice and research on how companies should navigate and take advantage of fast changing business environment.
Michael is a Partner at the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), McKinsey's business and economics research arm where he leads research on the impact of disruptive technologies and innovation on business. If you want to stay in touch with the latest on bleeding edge technology trends and how it will impact businesses around the globe, it's hard to find a better account to follow. From updates on robotic, autonomous sailboats who are scouring the oceans for data to details of how the on-demand economy is evolving workforce trends, this is the place to be.
Lareina is Senior Partner at McKinsey and helps spearhead the Digital Sales Initiative there. In the tech world, it can be easy to get lost in the wizardry and the idea of the "next big thing" but Lareina's feed serves as a good reminder: regardless of the product, excellence throughout your sales organization is key toward building a lasting business. In addition, to excellent content about sales, she covers a lot of ground on the gender gap that women still face in the workforce.
Finally, one last reminder here: not only do these three Partners tweet great content that will keep you engaged, it can be a helpful leg up in your upcoming interviews. After all, it never hurts to know what's top of mind for the firm leadership. And if you want even more consulting Tweets goodness, check out our feed @RocketBlocks.
