A Bullshit Facilitator is a certain professional, or group of them, that couldn't make it to the Big League in the western world, so decided to spice up his/their CV and venture somewhere else in one of under-development countries, hoping to be mistaken for a Guru and to get some business.
Generally bullshit facilitators have western looks, spiffed up attires, and they talk a lot of pseudo-jargon at length, trying always to sound intelligent and business-savvy by decorating their long speeches to clueless audiences with words such as 'collaterals', 'rationales', 'incidence', 'strategy', 'low hanging fruits', 'branding' and other buzzwords, mixed with complex diagrams that resembles oftentimes the structure of Dante's Inferno.
This, in terms of business, is like wanting to teach the theories of West Coast Offense to some 5th Graders playing touch football once a week on sundays afternoons.
Generally their fields of specialty are those gray zones in business where you can say everything and the exact contrary and not being easily proven wrong, such as, for instance, design, or, I dunno, branding and marketing.
They're facilitators because they make easier to absorb bullshit by mistaking shit for sound business advices and also in the sense that they make easier for other countries to produce that same bullshit that come from the Western World.
