Re: @VulcanV5 re "motivational speaker"
>On the other hand, once upon a time a couple of decades ago I unexpectedly had the great pleasure of listening to an Apollo astronaut (Aldrin? Armstrong? sorry guys, it was a long time ago) address a sales conference for a techy company.
>*That* was inspirational.
Years ago I had the good fortune to meet Buzz Aldrin on board the USS Sequoia, as a guest of Textronix, who had engaged him as a speaker. It was a works jolly for test engineers attending ITC in Washington DC. Everyone was given a signed copy of his book "Men from Earth".
It's not something I am liable to forget. But I probably stopped after only a couple of glasses of champers...
Mr Sage, on the other hand, sounds eminently forgettable, with or without the aid of alcohol.
