Another piece SPOT-ON, Mr Clarkson!!!

Jeremy tackles the nonsense meeting-people blurb out when they're... well, in a meeting.

His definition perfectly matches mine:

“places where nothing happens and nothing gets done”


Later on in the day, you ring the person who called the meeting and in less than a minute decide on a course of action.

and what about the meetingese spoken:

“Well, we’re outside the box here with a new kind of hybrid venture and we can’t know what the result will be until we’ve run the flag up the flagpole and seen which way the wind’s blowing.”


“It’s mission critical that we use blue sky thinking and that we’re proactive, not reactive, if we’re to come up with a ballpark figure that we can bring to the table.”

to end up with:

“We must maintain a client focus so that we can incentivise the team and monetise the deliverables, and only then can we take it to the next level.”

Mr Clarkson, as usual, you're spot-on.

And yes, I'm sorry dear Boss, but sometimes you do it, too.
