Happy holidays

– Hi everyone! As the year comes to a close, I feel grateful for everything 2017 brought with it—the energizing client engagements, the new faces I met through the year, the events and communities I was part of—and it leaves me feeling content. Last week I bumped into a recent hire who joined the firm about three months ago. I met him the first time a year ago at our recruiting dinner at INSEAD, and subsequently interviewed him on campus. It is heart-warming when someone you introduced to your firm and your work family is enjoying their experience. I feel lucky to be able to share my experiences and the lessons I have learned in my journey with the next cohort of McKinsey colleagues!

Wishing you a happy holiday season

I look forward to spending time with family and friends over the holidays back home in India. I plan to recharge and energize for everything 2018 will bring, including my Antarctica expedition in February 2018. More about that later!

Wishing you restful holiday season,
