Immediate past master of the Guild of Management Consultants, Brian O’Rorke presented the new incumbent George Cox with the traditional “Loving Cup” at the Master’s dinner held at the Barber Surgeons’ Hall on 21 May.
Cox said that the Guild is not only about following tradition, but about fellowship and putting something back into society, particularly helping charities which can ill-afford consultants.
He believes that the Guild is well on its way to becoming a livery company: “The charitable fund is likely to exceed #100,000 by the end of the year; twice what we need to have for company status,” he said.
Cox hopes to apply for the status in September this year and attain it by December 1998.
