Gint BS: The Corporate World (58* d) RE: BS: The Corporate World 30 Oct 99

I have worked for several of the larger UK retail groups, usually as store manager and at "Team Building" or management seminars I have always without trying managed to get noticed by the gods (CEO's & vice prez's) proberbly because I treated them like people

I was on a management course in the early 80's with Tandy's and in chatting to the MD (UK version of CEO) he mentioned he had aproblem with training video's, because of the NTCS > PAL conversion at that time was a problem

I told him that I had lunch most days with a team of reserch technitions who had solved the problem.

The scene: in a bar the first night of a two week training course a new manager being held by his suit lapels by the head of the UK company whilst the European vice president was jokingly punching him in the gut, to get the needed information out of him

For the rest of the fortnight I was treated as an alien I obviously knew the GODS and sacraficed other manages at their alter.

To top it the company bought the lab and I got a free lunch on the company
