What is a consultant, our purpose - why do we exist?
we help organisations in many ways, sometimes even when they resist.
Some will say they love solving problems, but that isn’t a purpose - it’s a skill,
like engineering, design, or writing, it just takes experience and will.
Our real purpose is to deliver truths; with honesty they are quoted,
harsh as they often are, they should never be sugar-coated.
We present them diplomatically as needed, with all the proof and every fact,
that is the commitment to our clients, our guarantee, our pact.
To fulfil that purpose, we never shy away from questioning nor flinch at digging deep,
we challenge the status quo and overcome distractions; our focus we must keep.
Pretty powerpoints are but a medium, not the goal that we pursue,
our integrity demands that each project is given the attention it is due.
While we provide recommendations for our clients to decide,
sometimes, they choose wrongly, but we have to take that in stride.
We mustn’t take it personally, lest our mental health be assailed,
to the right clients, the best ones, as personal advisors, we will be hailed.
That is our calling; for our harsh truths to be honest and by our clients to be trusted,
the experience, capabilities, and medium are but a means when all is done and dusted.
