I love meetings

No, I do. I love meetings that are well planned and productive. But, just occasionally I do get distracted in meetings.

Earlier this week I was distracted by words and phrases being used. What do you think of these?

This phrase appeared in the middle of a slide:

Adaptability delays and reduced elasticity due to local and global regulation.

I found myself wondering how many different meetings I could insert that phrase without anyone picking me up on it.

And a couple of words popped up, one on a slide and another in conversation. Neither of them was recognised by the spell check on my computer. That said, a quick Google search revealed a worrying level of use of them.

Virality
noun
The tendency of an image, video, or piece of information to be circulated rapidly and widely from one Internet user to another; the quality or fact of being viral.

New metrics will allow marketeers to better assess the virality of their campaigns.

Multipreneuer
A working definition
A multipreneuer is an entrepreneur who is actively involved in several projects at once.

I’m off to see some friends for dinner. I’ll see if I can slip these words in to our conversation without them noticing or telling me I’m talking bollocks (again).
