    It's simple.

    Just call, saying:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "Hi, it's XY, as you forward me to [business owner], please tell him it's about
    the
    commensurability suggestions. Thank you."

    If she asks "commensur- what?"

    "The commensurability suggestions, thank you."
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The commensurabily part is replaceable. Just pick an unusual word of your
    choice.

    1. Call
    2. Test it
    3. ????
    4. Profit

    Used it umpteen times, I know it works. They don't want to feel stupit and
    ask what commensurability is. They think it's some boss-stuff. Business-talk
    which they don't really care about.

    In 9 of 10 times they'll connect you.

    Commensurability, simply stated, means the comparence of two concepts.
    So... if you're offering something new to replace something old it's not that
    far from reality. (Remember to speak it fast.)

    Good luck!

    Although it's not the nicest way to trick the gatekeeper... it's working. You
    could also play that one on her:

    "Hi, erm... er... I found a little sticky note here on my desk, telling me to give
    [business owner] a call... do you know what it's about?
    "

    Zap. In most cases you're in, with no futher talk between gatekeeper & boss.

    There you go, White Hat and Black Hat in 2 posts! I think it's a great example for those that wonder what's the difference!

    Yes Sir. Never let a gatekeeper judge the value of something he or she knows nothing about. Who knows how many business opportunities got lost for both sides... just because of a 'no my boss isn't interessted in anything, even if it's free money'-mentality.
