WEAK AT THE TOP: 'Sir Marcus has been on holiday. We're all bracing ourselves for his new management wheeze'

The only time he reads a business book is when he's on holiday. My personal management fad is to make sure my door is always open - so I can have an unobstructed view of the delicious Celeste Nibelle.

Sir Marcus has been on holiday, which is great while it lasts but hell when he gets back. That's because the only time he reads a business book is when he's on holiday. We all pray it's not a long-haul flight in case he gets ambitious and reads a serious one. Of course, he might have completely de-stressed on holiday and decided to take a more relaxed, hands-off approach to the business, but the chances of that happening are slim to anorexic.

We're all bracing ourselves for cheese-moving, minute-managing or elephant dancing. My personal management fad at the moment is to make sure my door is always open. This isn't for idiots to come waltzing in with half-baked ideas but so that I can have an unobstructed view of the delicious Celeste Nibelle.
