Team work

There's no 'I' in 'team'.

We got that from a management consultant we had in last week. We swiftly pointed out that there is a word of a different nature in 'consultant'. Yes, that's right, it begins with a C and ends with a T. We hope this won't offend any readers, but we'd better tell you what it is...It's the word 'cult'. Sorry. It had to be said. Here at T4td Corp we take very great exception, and often aggressive legal action, if anyone says that word around us. T4td Corp is not a cult. We do not have a charismatic leader, nor do we ask our followers - that is our 'customers' - to engage in particular forms of behaviour. In fact we don't care what you do, so long as you don't try to prevent our good work in taking the regular payments you've inadvertently authorised us to remove from your bank account, your partner's account, your mother's pension fund and the credit card account of a man called 'Gerald' with whom you once played squash.

Meanwhile, back to the management consultant. We thought we might book a different consultant to come in each week. It could save money. We decided this after we picked this chap's brains - I can tell you now, they were delicious. We could save a fortune on catering.

More invigorating thought tomorrow. Probably.

T4td Corp.
We know you want it.
