Most fish don’t know they swim in water.  At least not the fish whom I have interviewed.

The same is true of most human beings when it comes to corporate culture.  Most of us don’t appreciate fully the cultures of which we are a part.

I am happy to be with our employees today in bricks and mortar rather than in the clouds. You truly are our most valuable resource.

I am sorry that we had some systems issues when we reached out to you.  But we are agile, so we created a work around to connect with all of you today, so that we can call out to you a new initiative that will result in a knowledge share.
