Lucy Kellaway has surgeon-level skills when it comes to cutting through the BS of modern business. Quoting the pocket bio provided by London’s Financial Times:
Lucy Kellaway is an Associate Editor and management columnist of the FT. For the past 15 years her weekly Monday column has poked fun at management fads and jargon and celebrated the ups and downs of office life.
Lucy also features regularly on the BBC’s Business Daily, which is where I discovered her several years ago. Here are two of the podcasts that turned me on to the Kellaway School of Corporate Crap Disposal: Lucy’s take on the resignation of Yahoo boss Carol Bartz, and her smackdown on Googlemeister Larry Page for a pompous PR announcement that’s all wrapping paper and no gift.
The most recent of Lucy’s podcasts are available here, but take a stroll through the archives too.
