Jan Soderberg is a name forever etched on my memory as synonymous with my nemesis at work. A thoughtful review of the picture below dear reader will confirm this in your own mind without a shadow of doubt!
Note his churlish smile and the attempt to mimic Britain’s great wartime leader, Winston Churchill. This photo was taken at our off-site in Windsor in February when both our teams came together for the 2015 kick-off.
Read on for more “villainy” that will take your breath away…..
Jan was (is) my counterpart in the Nordic region and I can honestly say the song “Anything you can do, I can do better” could have been written for him! Be it retention, growth, people (or the speed of his powerboat) he’d always find a way to beat me! It got so bad I almost destroyed my ABBA collection and burnt my IKEA furniture!
Indeed my nerves became so bad at the continual stress of trying to match his prowess I became dangerously addicted to large cups of tea as seen below.
He even tried to beat my UK-Ireland region unfairly at a singing competition we sportingly arranged – by hiring two semi-professional singers into his team – how low can you sink?
Of course I’m only joking, Jan & I were best of friends really & I shall really miss our regular catch ups which were so much fun.
So farewell Jan for now, I really hope we can meet up again some day! 🙂
