    If you want to help, they won't knock back free / cost labour in I.T, just write to them!
    Not a bad shout old chap. Though I remember NHS Digitals director bad mouthing us at the HMRC tribunals and will try not to hold a grudge

    Edit to add - a salesman sells solutions to pains and issues the customer is aware of. If you can't solve their current issues don't waste time and find another customer.
    Reminds me of some young buck whose nose I put out on linkedin.

    He was going on and on about everyone should use microservices as they are easy. I pointed out different clients have different business requirements and needs, you tailor solution to that. He didn't agree and ranted about how he'd worked on a £Xm project for a bank... I didn't have the heart to point out their requirements may well have aligned with use of microservices but that's not the case everywhere.

    I was tempted to wind him up by pointing out I preferred when microservices were called remote EJBs and CORBA...
