MPF unsung heroes campaign

Following this week's Financial Times article, the response to the Managing Partners' Forum's public call for respect for practice management professionals has been fantastic. Here is a selection:

"Glad to see you are tackling this. I have been on about it for the last five or more years - non-chargeable, non professional, non fee earning, non people etc. I love being a non person, especially one with management responsibilities over lawyers." CEO, Top 100 law firm
"In management consultancy/IT services we have fought a long battle over the years to establish respect and credibility for marketing....the law and accountancy firms appear to be about 10 years behind the needs of their marketplace in this respect...." Head of Marketing, Communications and High Tech Operating Group, management consultancy
"Good stuff! It was also sent to me by our global COO, so that's encouraging." HR Director, Magic Circle law firm
"This is a really important theme." Global Director of Research & Knowledge Management, management consultancy
"I am delighted to receive the latest news on this initiative and anything that I can do to help, just let me know. It has been a thorn in my side for many years and your description of "second class citizen" will strike a chord with many of us out there." Client Services Manager, insolvency practitioners
"It's simple really but the arrogant professional is too up his own a**e to understand but we know that without support they wouldn't have a hope in hell doing their job properly. I support your campaign!" Former Managing Partner, accountancy
"What a marvelous idea - I would be keen to get involved in your campaign having long felt like an "also ran" in a firm where the emphasis is on fee earners rather than others....." Marketing Executive, Top 200 law firm
"This is very helpful. I am currently undertaking an audit of our HR department in an effort to build on PR profile internally and enhance our reputation." UK HR Director, Top 10 US law firm
"Saw it this morning when I was eating my breakfast and smiled!" Executive Manager, Magic Circle law firm
"Having been in professional service and general management for 15 years, I will help champion this cause in any way I can." Director of Business Strategy, Top 50 law firm
"If you think it's bad in the UK, you want to see what it's like here in the US!" Global Marketing Director, Top 100 law firm
