We’ll help you prepare for the world’s most demanding interviews.
Our clients are some of the most selective firms in the world, using a combination of case and personal interviews to select fewer than one in 100 applicants. Drawing on our background with BCG and McKinsey, we have developed the Interview Boot Camp and Individual Coaching specifically to help you prepare for these demanding selection processes. More than one in three past participants received an offer from a top-three consulting firm – a significantly higher success rate than applicants who prepared alone.
We recommend the Interview Boot Camp to candidates interviewing for a Junior Consultant or Consultant-level role. We typically support senior candidates interviewing for Manager, Principal or Partner-level roles through Individual Coaching.
Interview Boot Camp
This intensive 2-day weekend programme covers both case and personal interviews. It includes individual coaching sessions with ex-consultants, plenary sessions, group exercises and opportunities to practise interviews and connect with other preselected candidates.
The Boot Camp is taught exclusively by alumni of McKinsey, BCG and Bain, with at least one coach for every four participants.
Boot Camp participants have awarded the programme a Net Promoter Score of 95%, reflecting an extremely high level of satisfaction.

The Boot Camp is an optional preparation service. Selected candidates who do not wish to participate can be introduced to our clients free of charge. Terms & Conditions apply.
Boot Camp is the most effective way to prepare for interviews, but if you can’t attend or are interviewing for a senior role, we also offer individual coaching.
The programme includes:
- Individual coaching sessions with ex-Bain, BCG and McKinsey consultants, covering both the case and the CV interviews
- Videos of our most popular plenary sessions (e.g., case structuring, numeracy, synthesis)
- Extensive case practice material
- Access to other preselected candidates for further practice
You may only register for either Boot Camp or individual coaching if you are pursuing an opportunity with us and have passed our screening interview.
