Ecclesiastes 1:9

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

Odgers have announced, with a great fanfare, their shiny new idea of hiring out consultants to their clients, reflecting what is apparently known as the  ‘gig economy’. I have only had the pleasure of working through Odgers on one occasion, many years ago now, when they hired me out as a consultant to one of their clients.

I was originally taken on for a week, but only worked three days because the company was unexpectedly taken over. The CEO insisted on paying me in full anyway. So, Odgers, I heartily welcome this revolutionary and completely unprecedented venture of yours, especially if it works out anything like the last time that you did it.

“Twice and thrice over, as they say, good is it to repeat and review what is good.” – Plato
