Buzzword of the day

Today's Buzzword of the day is priceless:

B U Z Z W O R D O F T H E D A Y

MEETINGS: Meetings have become so tainted they now go by a number of other names. These definitions from a recent Jared Sandberg column in the Wall Street Journal were so accurate BuzzWhack decided to share them with its readers:

BRIEFINGS -- meetings that last longer than intended

SEMINARS -- expensive meetings with handouts

PRESENTATIONS -- meetings preceded and followed by many other meetings

VIDEOCONFERENCES -- meetings with technical difficulties

CONFERENCE CALLS -- meetings with eye-rolling
