Motivational life lessons from David Brent (The Office)

Motivational speaking is often seen as the trade of phonies and eccentrics -- think Jim Cunnigham (Patrick Swayze) of Cunning Visions in the film Donnie Darko. While prolific on both the business and public circuits, genuine motivational 'visionaries' are few and far between.

Earlier this year, Digg users were invited to submit questions they would like to hear Branson answer, then urged to rate (digg) the questions of others. Then, socialite-turned-media-mogul Arianna Huffington put the top ten most dugg questions to Branson on the inaugural Virgin America flight from San Francisco to Orange County, California.

While clearly lampooning the regular UK Dragons, who won't be familiar to most Australians, there's also much mirth to be found in their portrayal of the shows endless line of absurdly optimistic entrepreneur-pitchers.

Guinness brings its marketing strategy to life

This sweeping new Guinness ad is more than just a breath of fresh air. It marks a departure from the marketing strapline "Good things come to those who wait" that those at the helm of the famous Irish stout brewer have clasped closely for the past decade.
