The Black Suit Plan Isn't Working - Now What?

Presented at The Next HOPE (2010), July 18, 2010, 4 p.m. (60 minutes)

The suit plan isn’t working. At The Last HOPE, James told you all about the awesomeness of The Black Suit. But you’re finding that it’s not really working out… maybe it’s possible to lower the goal? Can we take advantage of the Econopocalypse, the fact that two years have gone by, and infiltrate the upper echelons without having to leave the Black Hat behind? With cyber humor, blistering criticism, and awesometastic possibilities, spend some time in a discussion about ways to get to the place we all want to be - employed and happy.
