We’ve all (well most of us) sat through them, stifling yawns, fidgeting, nodding in the right places (we think). Then leaving, chatting to co-workers, discussing what has just been heard… or more accurately asking each other what the hell had just been said.
Corporate ‘bull’ is a plague that I’ve mentioned before, particularly the use of big words when simpler, easier to understand ones will do, and it seems like I’m not the only person to notice.

What a top idea, I’m off to download it and run some marketing brochures through it!
