Several bits of news in today; Two industry pro’s come out of retirement to setup a new consulting firm and 1,155 day book tour finally ends, beats records, allowing third consultant (said author) to join what is surely an industry consultancy dream team.
- We hear that this new consultancy may well be modelled on the highly successful Imperative Group Associate Program (at the time of writing, ‘associates’ include; Chris Heap, Ralph Ahern, Gaye Bennett, Bryan Crotaz, Bertrand Le Ficher, Gareth Bale, Dave Gittins, Joy Salisbury, Fiona Ryder, Stephen Randall, Alex Ostrowski, Wayne Rooney, Andrew McCall, Michael Mascioni, Jennifer Harris, Spongebob Squarepants, Amanda Groom, Andrew Griffiths to name but a few). Whilst it may be a stretch for FCK & Co. to ever get to that size we understand that this new consultancy will have a truly international remit – especially in countries where they do not speak the local language
- At a total of 1,155 days (three years and two months) it’s likely that this book signing tour could easily be the longest ever – beating the previous record held by a certain Ken Follett by a large margin. The Guinness World Records are refusing to comment publicly, prompting concern and outrage among a number of other celebrated authors.
Finally, we understand that there is no truth in the rumour that this new firm will specialise in either intellectual property law or patent law, and it’s also unlikely that at present, they have any plans to employ patent attorneys, patent agents and/or patent engineers.
