Celebrities in Consulting

clive

I heard a report this week that Rory Underwood had taken up a career in the world of MC. Is this a common phenomenon? How well does this go down with clients? Do ex-sportsmen have value beyond the obvious kudos and motivational benefits they bring with them?

Are there any ex reality stars working for - say, BAS?

Not a chance! to clive (#1)

You might find a few ex-sports stars doing the rounds, but most sports now pay too handsomely for the stars to need to work consulting hours for <£100k salaries once their sporting careers are over. The odd rugby player (pre 2003) / athlete / failed tennis player might wash out in a professional services firm, but if you're a modern day sports star and have made your millions in sport, why would you do anything other than i) retire, ii) commentate on sport (ie. take a hobby) or iii) set up your own business backed by your own money?!

easy money to Not a chance! (#2)

Quite a few retired sports stars have turned to guest speaking and do v well.

At my co. Roger Black came along to talk about 'dedication, teamwork, motivation...' and was very good, certainly all the women thought so.

One of the partners in BOP has a brother in the Pet Shop Boys. Does that count as a celeb?

"Roland Berger himself IS actually some kind of celebrity in Germany"

Hmm, that's not saying much. They set the celebrity bar real low there!

Yes. Look it up. McK also boasts a rugby world cup winning All Black captain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Kirk).

Sound investment by Mckinsey. A collectible and truly rare - a winning All Black.

What’s the difference between the All Blacks and an arsonist? An arsonist wouldn’t waste five matches.
