‘Interminable Bloody Meetings’ was one of the more publishable explanations I’ve heard of the initials IBM. Today, there are two tirades against meetings and against ‘death by PowerPoint’.
PowerPoint is even more of an occupational hazard now that I’m a university lecturer than when I was a public relations consultant. (Yesterday I handled a three hour class without being able to use my prepared presentation. It reminded me that years ago I ran a successful press conference for a computer manufacturer through a power cut. In the event, it was a better experience for the absence of prepared presentations since there was more time for discussion.)
