How to Make a Strong Sales Pitch

I was recently working with some college graduate. On a break in the training I overheard one of the graduates ramble off an old movie quote “Coffee is for Closers!” After a good laugh it struck me. This quote has never been more important than it is today. With a workforce that is inundated with college educated millennials ready to accept lowering paying roles for a chance to climb the corporate ladder. The ability to close deals has never been more important. The reality is, closing the deal ...

Where Saturday Night Live's Trump Administration Satire Goes Flat

While the bits with Alec Baldwin (as Trump) and Melissa McCarthy (as press secretary Sean Spicer) tend to be solid, argues David Sims, "the rest of SNL's political satire, such as Saturday's cold open that framed Attorney General Jeff Sessions as Forrest Gump, often leans on presenting the Trump administration as cheerfully unaware or low on brainpower. It's a more toothless approach that's far easier for viewers of all political viewpoints to dismiss."
