So we’ve had a highly-paid (is there any other type) consultant, pal of Dr12, in at SML for a couple of months now to do an operations review. We’ll call her H’Aggie.
Eye-rolly as I am about consultants, I adored H’Aggie – probably because she agreed with everything I had been on about for ages and the approaches I had adopted, but which Hecate (and TheProfessor) had put a stop to via KingLear. H’Aggie very quickly worked out who was who in the zoo and easily identified all the areas of weakness.
Heather, Vincenzo and I were constantly delighted by her consultant talk: “let me just wash this over you”. And it was just so nice to have some positive energy around.
And such a high-achieving-go-getter! She has the consultancy, an additional very successful side business, is glamorous, well-dressed, completely together, lovely … all the things.
And then we discovered she has small children. Eeek! How do people pull this having-it-all off?
As with all things, no one is perfect, we discovered a weakness – her documents and charts are FULL OF UGLY (so, so, so hideous). Perhaps I should offer myself up as a document wrangler to the consultancy.
In good news, her mysterious and secret recommendations are going to the Board at the end of the month, so lets hope there is a reckoning.
