management consulting includes a broad range of activities, and the many firms and their members often define these practices quite differently. One way to categorize the activities is in terms of the professional’s area of expertise.
I didn’t want to be a fashion designer, and for a good half of my career I didn’t like it. I always wanted to do other things. You can hide so much behind theatrics, and I don’t need to do that anymore. You can’t just buy things for the label – it’s ridiculous.
