A bullshit artist who is paid to provide ideas to managers, who then make the ideas appear to employees as if they were their own. Meanwhile, the consultant runs off to the the service of another client in order to avoid being around to take the blame when their obscurantist, superficial ideas are actually implemented.
Here's that douchebag consultant again who is going to give some quadrant diagram on mitigation strategies for $2k/day.

those unfortunate idiots who are caught between the reality of existence and the percieved reality their family, friends, associates, or computer software is telling them. a consequence of motivated conditioning towards reward and a separation from individual thoughts about the natural world.
no sense of appreciation or respect for privacy.
unfortunately they are a real pain in the ass to intelligent people.
they will usually mimic in order to achieve their delusional goals.
anyone who manipulates other people to achieve a superfluous lifestyle.

tactics usually include: friendship or some sort of cult or religious believe.
they coast off the accomplishments of harder working people, which would be fine if they didnt turn the world world into a mockery and try to pull them into it.

(Chiefly British:) A period before a decision (such as a new regulation) takes effect, during which opposed opinions are heard.

A consultation usually takes place after an unpopular resolution has been made by the authorities. Usually a consultation offers the illusion that people's opinions matter and that said decision can change, where in fact they are merely designed to let steam out.

Consultations also 'cover the decision maker's arse': when the decision turns out to be a mistake, the absence of public records of the consultations allows the decision maker to claim to share the responsibility.
The announcement of budget cuts was followed by a brief consultation, during which everyone chickened out and nobody spoke up.
