The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


Monday Morning Giggle …

Once upon a time I was working with an alcohol client who was launching a new product.

I sat in copious amounts of meetings and watched loads of men sample – or should I say oversample – the product as part of the research process.

I kick myself I didn’t use the line from this cartoon to define those meetings. Damnit.

Yep. But I blame the clients who embrace them more than the people who do them. Outsourced decision making.

Comment by Rob

Mediocre clients pretending to be decisive.
