Can consulting manage Brexit?

Where are they now? No 501

Choked over the muesli this morning.

BBC News 24 interviewing one Peter Cheese — my very first, and it goes without saying, long suffering project manager at what was then Arthur Andersen Management Consulting, sometime last century.

For one stomach churning moment I did wonder if he was finally going to finger me for sabotaging his client — scrap metal, Watford, very salubrious.

But no, he survived that ordeal it seems, rose to be global managing director of Accenture's Talent and Organisation Performance consulting business, and was speaking to the Beeb as chairman of the charity Institute of Leadership and Management (though I was too flummoxed to register what about).

Appropriate role — I suspect that baby-sitting me showed him everything he needed to know about both leadership and management.
