I decided strategy consulting would be a faster route to interesting work than law and was lucky enough to join Adventis, a boutique strategy firm that focused on the collision of telecoms, media and technology. I started in Boston and then transferred to London, and learned from a lot of great people.
I worked on over 25 projects in the 6 years I was there, all of which were new venture or growth strategies.
I couldn't have asked for better opportunities or mentors.
Sadly Adventis is no more; its people scattered far and wide after some bad management decisions —
an early lesson in the mobility of great people.
