Shake the Grinch in Presentations

Every Who at Who, Inc. liked company keynotes a lot,
But the Grinch, who was their manager, did not!
The Grinch hated presentations, no matter the season,
Though he didn’t say why, we know his demeanor was the reason!

It wasn’t that his stance wasn’t settled just right,
And it wasn’t that his shoulders were often too tight.
We think that the most likely reason of all,
Was that no one had given him the tools to recall.

Whatever the reason, his attempts didn’t do,
He had a good deal of trouble connecting with all of the Whos.
Staring down from his desk with a sour, Grinchy frown,
Planning for the kick-off meeting with all the big wigs in town.

He had to present and his confidence was low,
And he sat puzzling and puzzling, “Why was this so?”
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore,
Till the Grinch thought of something, he hadn’t before.

“Maybe my message,” he thought, “Has become quite a bore.”
“Maybe my presence, perhaps, needs a little bit more!”
And what happened then? Well…at Who, Inc. they say,
The Grinch called SW&A that very same day!

And a storyline developed that took quite a hold,
Because his message was focused, and clever and bold.
And he warmed up his touch and he spoke right to me!
And the Grinch, HE HIMSELF! is a new SVP!
