Something similar happened to a friend of mine, who was hired because he was a marketing expert to design and produce a catalog for a client. After he’d been working on the project for months, he went to meet the client and was shocked to see a strange person in the meeting. The client explained they’d hired an expert to evaluate his work and the expert recommended some changes. He said to the client, “You hired me to create this catalog because I’m an expert in creating catalogs. Now you hired another expert to evaluate my work. That must mean you’re an expert at this, because you feel capable of discerning between two experts. So which expert opinion are you going with?” The client indicated the new expert, at which point my friend said, “You don’t work like this,” and he walked out of the building. The company president found him in the parking lot, unaware of what had just happened, and asked how he was. When he described what had just happened, the president took him by the arm and said, “That’s not the way we do business. Let’s go back inside.” The president invaded the marketing meeting, told the marketing manager what he had done was unprofessional, and dismissed the second expert.
