You have been working on a proposal with a colleague who is in the same team and junior to you. You’ve both put in a significant amount of work and you can see that your colleague is really extending themselves.
It was to be a joint presentation but due to the quality of the presentation you’ve been told by your manager that there is an unusual opportunity to present directly to the client and she has asked you to make the presentation.
What would you do?
Do you have any duty or obligation to your colleague? To your manager? To the client?
