This week’s Strictly Boardroom column tells a tale of a management consultant’s visit to the orchestra and a management academic’s horror it has recommendations. The piece is really a call for more professional respect between silos, recognising the value of other professionals’ skills and that good professionals are good professionals, no matter what the profession.

The article is entitled: “On mutual respect: engineers, geologists, consultants and academics” and is available to subscribers online. Otherwise contact me for a copy.

For keen followers of the Strictly Boardroom column, our book “Strictly (Mining) Boardroom Volume II: A Practitioners Guide for Next Generation Directors” was published last year and is available as a paperback or e-book from Major Street Publishing or Amazon.
