A serious lack of communication on our blog (except from the USA where our colleague Martin still tries to educate his US team on the importance of football (soccer for those who don’t know any better).
Everything besides necessary business tasks is taken up by the World Cup. But even during the business day you can hardly miss what’s going on in the football nations.
Telling signs are for example:
-The most important morning read is not one’s usual favourite trade or business newsletters but our internal e-mail update regarding the GlobalCom WorldCup bet and tip ranking-
-Office outfits are a bit more interesting than usual and demonstrate which country employees support
(we’re still waiting for fan outfits of our Japanese colleague – he should be celebrating today)
– The usual conference call opening topic weather has been completely replaced by the latest results, analysis of the last games and expectations
– Our French colleagues are growing desperate – arranging press meetings seems to be impossible as everybody seems to suffer from a collective depression
(let’s see how this will affect press contacts in Italy)
– Even early in the morning a lone Vuvuzela can be heard from below the office window …..
T-Online „Ranger Jens“ is looking for a solution of the Vuvuzela noise problem and presents alternatives on how to use Vuvuzelas in everyday life.
Alternative ides and suggestions are welcome!
