Yet another reminder today about how bad corporate speak really is. Charles Moore, writing in Britain’s Telegraph newspaper about the phone hacking scandal engulfing Rupert Murdoch and his media empire had this to say:
When you meet him (Rupert Murdoch), it’s impossible not to be impressed and charmed by all this (his remarkable media achievements). Unlike his son, James, who uses the wretched jargon of the business school, the old man speaks directly, wittily and even affectionately about his trade.
Down with business school jargon, I say! And we stress that in our media training workshops.
