I'll assume he is using jpg, because of course it doesn't matter with RAW.

Best to grey card and set a custom white balance.

It would matter if he's got it set to auto, whether using RAW or not it'd be a bitch to process sets of images with the WB going up & down like a yo-yo (seen many people do this)
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Not at all. You simply white balance from the reference image, then apply your receipe to all the images. Easy. Takes less than 10 seconds, assuming that you are using a decent RAW convertor.

I was a bit confused here too, regularly taking sets of 350+ images in a range,of indoor,and outdoor settings, its pretty much the case of shooting raw and selecting all in lightroom, press 'auto' (or wiggle the slider a bit to achieve te right look, synchronise and done. I'm always wondering if I'm missing an important point here since I've never encountered a problem with white balance really, in camera or in processing; and it seems such a hug deal for many folk.

I appreciate sometimes bad luck will give you natural light one side of the subject and incandescent the other, which often looks horrible, but even then you can just use an adjustment brush to tweak, or better still avoid unfortunate lighting.
