MEMBER EVENT: Over 50 and thinking about a job in consulting?

12:00 pm
1:00 pm

Over 50 and thinking about a job in consulting? Meet David Powell - Founder of Evolution Partners.

Evolution Partners is a Hong Kong-headquartered boutique management consultancy focusing on the Financial Services sector.

David is the Managing Partner. He believes in potential and sees the value in taking experienced and senior people and giving them the support to become incredible consultants.

He's open minded to the 'career changer', but Evolution Partners operates in the financial services sector so they are looking for people either:

  1. With a financial services background
  2. People who have good networks at a senior level who can help develop business
  3. People who can contribute internally with the development of thought leadership or build and develop the organisation as it grows

The aim of this meeting is to hear the sorts of things Evolution Partners does and to ask questions without the threat of this being 'an interview'. Our intention is to help you self-select if you feel consultancy would be an option for you.

The main things we hope you take away from this meeting are:

  • A clearer idea about Evolution Partners and what they do
  • A clearer idea about whether or not consultancy work would be right for you
  • A network: there will be other members with professional backgrounds who've been invited to attend and who've self selected to be here. We'll allow time towards the end for there to be further break out discussion
  • A sense of optimism: if organisations like Evolution Partners are interested in you then others will be too.
