Richard Tadman's soapbox piece in the current issue of SM seems to have generated some comment within the profession about the behaviour of buyers.
"My eyes have been opened by members of our profession who do us no credit at all," he says.
"I am shocked by the callous and rigid manner in which some buyers
operate. I'm not naïve or waging a campaign against power-crazed
buyers; I appreciate that with the modern pace of business it is not
always possible to foster cosy relationships. But a little thought and
courtesy towards those trying to sell their wares will go a long way -
and enhance our reputation in the process."
