Funny that we used to think she was a twit, not a Twitter–type CEO candidate. But here’s evidence that Velvet Talk Management’s mascot cat is a genius who could be president of a successful dot com company (if she wanted to).
She knows how to motivate people
Just one squawk from her and people, even really important ones, get up to feed her
Calm under pressure
Though people around here are regularly perplexed about the mushrooming complexity and competitiveness of the digital media scene, her relaxed appearance makes us think this doesn’t bother her at all.
She remains calm during emergencies: for example, last week when she was accidentally locked in a drawer, she stayed there with nary a cry for hours
She knows how to make employees happy – merely using a deft series of cute rollovers and coy looks
As every good salesperson and CEO learns sooner or later, it’s important to listen more than you talk. This cat has figured that out brilliantly.
Good at technology
Yah, really good with a mouse.
If only the cat had a degree from a Stanvard school, she could surely head up a big Dot Com company.
But then again, she’s so beautiful, maybe she doesn’t need such a resume. Perhaps she could just get by on her good looks alone and charm the board of Google or the like into hiring her.
One drawback, though: her name, Taffy, lacks the usual gravitas necessary for someone to assume a CEO role. Perhaps it can be changed to something like Lady Anne Knubacher.
It’s not like she’d have to do anything technical. Besides aren’t most successful dot coms now essentially run by their venture capital peeps?
