Festive cheer as consultants poke fun at their own industry
With the consulting market increasingly affected by talk of recession, stories to put a smile on the face of consultants have been somewhat thin of late

So it was with broad grins that we learnt of a comic strip launched by The Berkeley Partnership. Seemingly combining a Santa theme with a daily dose of sending up "the life of a consultant", there's a rich vein of material that the cartoonists could tap into here.

The creators will have the chance to take more than twenty swipes at the idiosyncrasies and stereotypes of the consulting world, with dodgy expenses claims and the-reality-of-the-job-not-living-up-to-the-promise already having featured...

Our thanks to The Berkeley Partnership for allowing us to reproduce one of the strips here:
