About Robert

Hi, my name is Robert and I wanted to say hello and welcome you to your McKinsey PEI prep - it's great to see you preparing for the McKinsey PEI at all (you wouldn't believe how many candidates are going to McKinsey interviews without a solid PEI prep - needless to say, a surefire way to unnecessarily lose your McKinsey offer!).

As we didn't have had a chance yet to get to know each other in one of my high-impact interview coachings, I just felt it's good to give you a brief idea about my background as well.

I am the founder of, multiple book author on consulting interview prep, a high-impact case interview & PEI coach having secured McKinsey offers for candidates even without having them go through final round interviews [yes, they only needed to sign the contract with a partner, without any more interviews by them], most viewed writer on 'case interviews' on with more than 100.000 views on my answers, PrepLounge Premium Expert with >95% recommendation rate and some more things like that.  

I don't intend to brag with all that, nor to bore you to death - just want to emphasize that this is serious stuff which works 100%!
