July 30, 2005
I do get the feeling through blogs, chats, discussions etc that there is a general absence of goodwill towards consultants among many of my friends. There is a tendency to brand consultants as greedy self serving salesmen who use bombastic language to sell an idea that could be pure nonsense or commonsense and then get paid a fortune for it.
I hesitate to fully buy into that theory. if consultents are not value for money, why do they get paid so much. Why are consultants and consulting companies thriving – especially Business and IT consultancies. And being an aspiring consultant myself, I'm pretty upbeat about the good that consultants can potentially do.
But why is there a sarcastic snigger when one talks about consultants ? Are they angels ? Or wolves in designer clothing?
Can any of you give me an informal opinion on Students Partnership Worldwide (SPW). Post your comments or send me an email – J.J.Philip@warwick.ac.uk
