The trick is to get them to pay you without you telling them what you
know already that they don't :)

So you have to say:  I know all about X.  They say: Prove it.  You tell
them, and then they know all about X too.

In consultancy you have to convince them to pay you without telling
what they are going to get. (apart from the report, that is)

ex Managing Consultant: ICL E-Business (sold Consultancy to Banks)
ex Director, Technical Strategy:  ICL Group (bought Consultancy)
now Retired (and much happier) and I don't know nothin' - 'specially
'bout 'puters!
