The Executive offered one of those salty, Zoom-based comments designed to "put you in your place":
- "If you the kind of Consultant you say you are, you'd have two dozen case studies on your website. You don't have any. You must not have any customers and you don't want anybody to know you don't have any customers. Interesting, don't you think?"
- "Because we had a conversation yesterday, so we consider that 'working together', and as you can see, the text says 'brands we've worked with'".
- They instead attributed the lies to my boss.
- They published a version of the case study / lies attributed to my name in Japan, thinking I'd never see that version (Narrator: He saw that version).
- Most NDAs (especially with large brands) require that I keep the working relationship quiet.
- Most of my Clients don't want you to know that we worked on a specific project, because knowledge of that fact means the Client loses their competitive advantage. If JCP knew that I worked with Macy's to improve profitability by $10,000,000, JCP could hire me to perform the same work. Why would Macy's ever want that to happen? Discuss.
- "It's my job to lie. It's your job to make my lies come true."
