This is Karl Moore of the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University, Talking Management for The Globe and Mail. Today I am delighted to speak to Bill Currie, who is the Managing Director of Deloitte for the Americas, the worlds largest professionals services firm. Bill, what is the future of consulting? Where is it going from here?
Over the past three years, McGill University’s horticultural research station on the Macdonald campus has been transformed into a market garden, supplying over 40,000 kilograms of produce to the University’s Food and Dining Services, to be used in residences and dining halls across the University’s two campuses.
It’s the morning of the 29th of August and I hastily get ready for my interview with Vince Spadafora (BCom’04), a senior manager at Deloitte. It’s already 8 am and the possibility that I may be late for my 10:30 am meeting at Place Ville Marie starts to become more and more likely. Why you ask? (or not) I haven’t decided on what to wear yet! I narrow my options down to two outfits: A black formal suit or a smart t-shirt with jeans. After a while I decide to go with both! I take the blazer from the suit and wear it with the shirt and jeans; casual yet professional. Perfect!
