We’ve all got one. That buzzword or phrase that just makes us cringe. Whether it’s set off by an email, a meeting or by watching an episode of The Apprentice, those business clichés can crop up literally anywhere.
‘I need 110% from you on this!’
‘Let’s go after the low-hanging fruit.’
‘We can really push boundaries here.’
‘How can we make this scalable?’
‘We’ve spotted a gap in the market.’
‘Let’s make it go viral.’
‘Think outside the box, everyone.’
‘This is a real game-changer.’
‘Let’s move on to mission-critical items.’
And the list goes on and on…
From meetings to networking events to brainstorms (a buzzword in itself!), our daily lives wouldn’t be the same without them. From the cringe-worthy to the confusing, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite ‘business buzzwords’ – perfect for keeping as a check-list to make sure you don’t fall victim to them, or for playing ‘Buzzword Bingo’ with in your next meeting!
