Channel Four’s Peep Show has a clip 3 minutes into the programme which might amuse you about management consultancy. Here’s the conversation:
Johnson: Here's my pitch: New Management Consultancy, you and me. I'm the face, you're the, uh, tendons and the grisly shit under the surface. Whaddaya say?
Mark Corrigan: Oh my God... I don't know. Really?
Johnson: Look at you! You're like the fat girl who's just been asked to the school disco.
Mark Corrigan: Well, yeah... my only hesitation is that I don't have any actual experience of management consulting...
[Johnson shuts Mark's lips with his fingers]
Johnson: In, fire 30% of the workforce, new logo, boom! Out. You are now a fully trained management consultant.
This comes on top of the US dark comedy House of Lies, which has lines like:
"We're here to open wallets, not minds," and, "Still don't know what it is we do? Then I guess we're doing it well."
Are there any more TV references to consulting out there? Let us know.
