THE SHADOWY WORLD OF CONSULTING

WEBWATCH

One of my favourite sources sent in www. tpsconsult.co. uk with the comment 'enjoy the way the home page takes a long time to draw a crappy building.'

The rot starts with the press release, which has random capital letters, an exclamation mark and a greengrocer's hyphen.

All in the heading.

The site text is more of the same. The practice is hot on 'partnering', can cope with 'multi-headed clients' and is keen on grasping 'the drivers of our clients' business'.

The MD of TPS is apparently a marine scientist - or as the site has it 'Marine Scientist', who says: 'When I can get time for myself I usually spend it underwater.'

He is also the father of 'very young children'.

I won't go on, except to ponder what connection there is between this firm and Trafalgar Square, the London Eye, Terminal 5 at Heathrow, and other such, all of which appear in unexplained thumbnails on various pages.

And what does TPS do?

Probably a whole bunch of things to do with, possibly, construction. And other things. Hey, I'm outta here before they give me an orange jump suit. I've just noticed that they have a defence sector director.
