Your most important customer has called twice. As the conference room doors open you see your assistant waving to you above the gaggle of dark suits. The assistant walks purposely toward you with your luggage in tow and the proposal strapped on top (hard and disc copy). Handing you your charged telephone Pat informs you, “Our best customer is on hold.” Eight steps and you’re in the elevator. Twelve more steps and you reach the idling cab. You hear the trunk door slam as you are handed a prepaid FedEx envelope. On it, a Post-It reads “Confidentiality agreement and power converter in carry-on with Mother’s Day card…its Hallmark, but not sappy… the flowers are ordered.” # # #
