The shame of shameless self-promotion

June 17, 2008 by Dave Haynes

So I am sitting at the Strategy Institute conference, listening to “Software Options: A Framework for Selection to Ensure Interoperability, Fit and Success.”

I know this is going to be one of those vendor-driven things of nominal value, but this one was particularly useless because of the first guy up.

We won’t say who, but vendor A gets up and says his company’s been around a long time and then rattles off why they’re so swell, and does the whole we’re scalable, reliable blah blah blah thing.

And we’re at this booth at infoComm and a couple of my sales guys are at the back of the room if you want to chat now. Hey guys, stand up so people know who you are.

And thanks, that’s it for me.

Never seen anything quite that shameless.

People pay more than a grand to go to this thing.
