Advent - A Public Announcement

The Overgraduate advent calendar will be back by popular demand. Last year was books so this year will have to be films. Not necessarily the best films but interesting films, meaningful (to me) films. Some films have already appeared on previous posts but I lack the energy to be relentlessly original. I am going to see the first film on the list at an actual cinema on Sunday so watch this space for the low-down on how it bears up to large screen scrutiny. Some of you may already have guessed what it is. Well clever old you.

Pyramid Selling: A Song Of Modern Management

up-sell
callage
partnership
pretty unique
critical mass
process mapping
bow tie approach
a brave new world
supply chain route
key influencer
multiple touch points
to much more focus on
far less failed deliveries
a whole nother suite of rooms
it's all about the customers
no second chance to create a first impression
 
selected for economy
a room too small
and smug with faux conviviality
fearful and loathing all
leaderene spitting vitality
oozing corporate offal
 
audience interaction
(non) participation
inanity
inaudible
how do you know?
trust me
 
money money money
must be funny.
 
Bloody hilarious.
