Management speak, translated!

Management speak: ‘Informal Catchup Meeting

Rest of the world: ‘Talk

This wouldn’t be so bad if the person who uttered this phrase had actually arranged to meet the only other ‘meeting’ attendee in an informal setting to catch up on whatever needed to be caught up on, but this phrase was actually used to refer to two people bumping into each other in the canteen and having a chat. Brilliant.

If anyone actually reads this and has any other good examples of management speak please add them in the comments.
