Career Breakfast on Management Consulting

Career Breakfast alumni speakers Dec 7, 2021

On Tuesday, December 7, two Bayview Glen alumni, Kyle Trahair ’11 and Connor Mahony ’13, joined our second virtual Career Breakfast as guest speakers and shared their insights in the Management Consulting profession with our current students and parents from the Prep and Upper School community.

Thank you Kyle for introducing us to the field of management consulting and the kind of work that it involves and the background and skills that make for a successful management consultant. He shared examples of the problems that get tackled by management consulting firms and how they take something complex and complicated, understand it quickly, analyse it, and finally communicate the solution very simply. Connor gave us insight into some of the career possibilities coming out of management consulting. You can get industry experience across many sectors including financial services and healthcare and work with a wide range of companies. This allowed him to narrow his interests and together with his problem-solving skills set him up for a jump to a start-up where he is using his experience to do everything from human resources to finance to hiring more people as the company continues to grow.

The last Career Breakfast of the school year is scheduled for Tuesday, March 1, 2022 at 8:00 a.m. to be held online via Microsoft Teams. Please stay tuned for more details. We look forward to seeing you at our next Career Breakfast.
