1) In dealing with Europeans, specify dress codes in as much detail as possible as to avoid any number of the following: pointy, purple shoes strangely reminiscent of Santa's helpers on crack, shirts with images of couples resembling the Kama Sutra (no joke!), black bomber jackets (in Texas, in June...nuff said), belly shirts, and glitter (Note: All rules are void if said European resembles Robbie Williams, anything he chooses to wear is fine)
2) If you don't know the answer to a question...lie. Or at least use the tried-and-true corporate phrase, "I'll get back to you on that."
3) If you pretend to be busy, you will not be bothered...except by Europeans
4) In dealing with Michael Dell it is best to smile, nod and do whatever he asks
5) It is always appropriate to drink (a lot) with co-workers after said event is complete. Playing shuffle board, choosing songs from the juke box, whoopin' ass at pinball and watching the "mom" of the group do tequila shots are all signs of a great corporate event!
