Today the plant manager called a meeting of all the top managers to welcome me to the company. We met in my private conference room. They brought in every chair they could find from every office. There were 22 people there. I listened politely for two and a half hours, not understanding a thing. The plant manager (to my left) spoke for an hour and then the assistant plant manager (blue polo shirt) spoke for an hour. Then they asked me to address the group. Afterwards we all went to the hotel and enjoyed a nice dinner. The company meeting started at 3:30 pm. I am finally back in my room at 8:00 pm.
