“They can’t kill you and eat you” – Unknown

When I was with a former employer who was a rather large multi-national corporation, there were, of course, meetings.  Lots of them.  Usually you were reporting to people who reported to other people who didn’t really know about what you were doing but they wanted to provide value anyway because they got paid a lot of money to “help” you.”  This is all a nice way of saying that you usually got your butt handed to you no matter what.

My colleagues and I would remind each other while preparing for the meetings, “Just remember, they can’t kill you and eat you.”

For those who worry about making that funding pitch in front of a crowd of strangers, that’s pretty good advice to remember.
