What is a professional?

Traditionally, people such as accountants, surveyors, engineers, solicitors and architects, were regarded as ‘professionals’.

However, modern reliance upon services provided by others and the increased use of outside consultants has increased the scope of this term and a professional is now often regarded as any person who offers specialist advice or services.
