BT: Business Talk
Let’s just cut right to it: this thing looks serious because it is serious. It’s a premium portable conference speaker with bluetooth connectivity and dual omni-directional mics that can pick up voices from a distance while minimizing background noise.
In other words, this thing makes business communications a breeze! At least, over the phone. What it can’t help with is the coded quasi-language known as written business communication…
But WE can! Check out this helpful cheat sheet of some of the most common business-related acronyms:
EOB: “Eat-on bike”; referring to the natural successor to the standing desk–the stationary bike cafeteria table.
SEO: “Sent every ornithologist”; the classic ‘oops, I hit reply all’ faux-pas, but at a bird-related business.
TBD: “Terse Bentley discussion”; a long-winded conversation about cars among high-ranking executives.
FYI: “Freckled yet invisible”; an expression used by workers when they feel they should be standing out in their field, yet cannot be recognized.
B2B: “Boyz 2 (II) Boyz”; an idea that fails to develop.
ROI: “Rodneys only inside”; a meeting exclusively for those who have accrued enough PowerClix within a Speed Quarter to ascend from status Darryl to status Rodney.
YDT: “Yesterday’s donuts today”; when a company attempts a marketing makeover without significant changes to its products or service.
ETA: "Erroneous Tabasco application**: an overly fiery response to what most would agree was a very tame email.
SOP: “Soup on patio”; for when there’s soup available on the patio.
There you have it, a list of common business-related acronyms that are bound to land in your inbox sooner or later. Of course, if you have others to contribute, post them in the comments. Otherwise remember: without a good conference speaker, you’ll be SOL (saddened over lackluster-call-quality).
