As law firms make more and more money, so the lines of snake-oil salesmen gets longer at their doors.
At least, so thought Tulkinghorn when a scribe showed him the following press release headline: “M Consulting appoints oral communications consultant.”
The marketing agency has brought in a former barrister to give training to lawyers on how to talk, which Tulkinghorn notes is perhaps the last thing they need.
One wonders whether a ‘perambulation adviser’ is also on M Consulting’s
list, after an ‘arse/elbow identification specialist’ comes on board, of course.
Tulkinghorn supposes that the only target market for an oral communications consultant is a group of four Teletubbies.
