Did you see this article on the BBC website today?

Title : Workplace jargon isolates staff

It's full of buzzwords and gobbledegook - great for advanced business learners.

Here's the link http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/6118828.stm

This article should get them 'on-message'.

I've been working with NLP people recentlyand they're the absolute worst. I don't think even they know what they're on about.

Also, look into Shirley Taylor's books for more on the topic of plain language.
