mannerisms

Ruminations on the electronics industry from David Manners, Senior Components Editor on Electronics Weekly.

Smile, Smile Smile

To the tune of  ’Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag’, IBM-ers used to sing a song from the ‘Songs of the IBM’ collection which started:

“Pack up your troubles – Mr Watson’s here

And smile, smile, smile.

He is the genius in our IBM

He’s the man worthwhile

He’s inspiring all the time

On Wall Street he’s sublime. Fine

He is our own matchless President

His smile’s worth while.”

 

Do I detect a note of sycophancy? It would be interesting to see a modern CEO try to get away with this sort of thing at a company gathering.
