We received a great response to the video we posted yesterday, Your business card is CRAP. Apparently, most Anthillians found it as hilarious as we did. In fact, one contact – reflecting on the theatrical and near-unconscious showman skills of the video’s star – mentioned that a friend of his who works in sales for Fairfax has, along with his Fairfax colleagues, been signed up for a course at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA).
Actors training salespeople how to mesmorise their targets with stage techniques? Not as crazy as it sounds. In fact, what a great idea!
