    I don't even know how ... :oldconfused:

    It's more like a consultant anaesthetist not knowing how to use a syringe. Even worse so because they have 2 weeks for the entire company to work out and communicate a solution to him. Yet some ali bongos reject can run a twitch stream. It's an absolute joke.

    I suppose performing a keynote speech to a live audience is fun, while performing the same to a camera is pretty boring.

    Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately) my ceo brought me into the company when he was an on the floor director so knows what we do, how we do it and how we work the system to get paid!

    Seen a fair bit of top brass not understand basic principles of the business we work in, but I suppose their job is managing the share price.

    For broad scope CEO/MDs, like moving between completely different retail industries where you don't need to now the specifics of the products being sold because retail is retail then yes, but this is a global tech giant. An industry leader who needs intricate knowledge of the business in order to drive the company in the right direction.

    Besides that, it's a basic life/business skill to be able to use video streaming services, to hold a video conference. You're saying that it's reasonable that in 2 weeks, the 3rd(?) biggest tech company as a whole can't explain to someone with a master's in electrical engineering, how to download and use Skype? Then we're all doomed, cause we're gonna get ****ed by a teasmaid with a grudge.

    Complaining that Jensen Huang of all people is ignorant of how his company works is some delicious irony.

    If he can't hear people clapping and cheering him he's not interested.
