Your Business-Speak Example of the Day
We are finishing strong and remain well positioned to capitalize on key opportunities. We are out in the marketplace with increased confidence, leveraging our value proposition and capabilities with our customers and brokers. While 2009 promises to be challenging, we will continue in our efforts to lead the market.
Translation: Unlike our competitors *cough* *AIG* *cough* we are still alive and mostly well. We are picking the bones of our failing competitors, which is good news for the sales people and underwriters (who had all been updating their resumes and searching Monster.com). 2009 will kinda suck, so don't get cocky or you can still find yourself holding up a cardboard sign that reads "Will adjust claims for food".
