Some great buzzwords & phrases heard in an executive speech:

  • the word repurpose
  • the word mythologize (which is real, but not really used)
  • the phrase take-away used as a noun (e.g. “The take-away of this meeting is…”)
  • the if I got hit by a bus today story about spreading information
  • the phrase inflection point (which I quite like, actually)
  • a short story about how the Chinese character for problem also means opportunity

It was short, though, and I actually got a very good impression of the guy giving the talk.
