Words of wisdom

Mary got some marketing goodies in the mail from Liberty Mutual that say she can "Save up to $576.92 a year or more on home and auto insurance." Up to X or more. I gotta remember that.

In other news, amidst the general tumult of the exciting Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (just don't say "SIFMA") exhibitors hall I saw Denise Valentine, with whom I interviewed at Celent back in December. She has now left Celent, meaning that now 4 of the 6 people I interviewed (including the one who let slip that Celent had turnover issues) with are now gone from that seemingly unhappy firm, leaving only CEO Octavio Marenzi and the none-too-prepossessing Mayiz Habbal. One wonders how one could allow a small firm to hemorrhage so badly and be so blissfully oblivious to the horribly obvious causes of the defections. That's the one job I'm happiest to have not gotten.

Hmmmm. Small professional services firm bleeding away senior staff. I've seen this before somewhere else.
