The Man Who Must

Todd is the Man Who Must.
Must tell you on Twitter what your business must do,
To move the needle, to make an impact –
like that tie of his with the Windsor knot
and the Shine-O Ball-O bald head
of sage authority in his profile picture
(tweaked, of course, but you’ll find that out later).

Todd is the Man Who Must.
Must tell you to visit his Linked In, to follow his blog,
because you must know more about deep diving and disruption;
about the bleeding edges not caused by the creases on his suit.

Todd is the Man Who Must.
Must tell you on Twitter what your business must do.
And, if you choose to pay out for the seminars and the conferences,
and the hotel room to follow,
You should already know from the certainty of his smile
that Todd is the Man Who Must.

And he will.
