And the NSA has been working double-shifts to try to figure out just what the hell he actually meant:
“All of us in this room need to go on a recruitment binge like we are going after basketball players.”
“We have got to get out of our silos. ... We have got to treat each other as customers as opposed to adversaries.”
“I want you to make money but at the same time I want you to sell the message.”
Is he talking about grain silos or missile silos? And what is this message he wants them to sell? Something about basketball players helping them sell their message about recruiting basketball players, possibly. Or maybe it's a public service message about safety:
The invitation-only event, which Trademark CEO Billie Redmond calls “the finest and greatest gathering of our C-level leaders” in North Carolina was so leader-heavy that cars, turned away from North Ridge, had to park at the shopping center across Falls of Neuse Road.
Suited leaders didn’t let that stop them, darting across the street in well-heeled groups.
I wonder if they did that squirrel thing, where they jump back and forth several times before choosing whether to cross the road or run back into the parking lot.
