Marketplace Whiteboard®

Good point, Sue

Paddy Hirsch Jul 22, 2010

I like getting mail from people who listen to the show and watch the Whiteboards. They make great suggestions, and good points about presentation.

Sue wrote in today.

I’ve just watched five videos and not one of the cartoon characters are female! While most of the characters are also not of a reputable nature, I still believe half of the population should not be ignored.

Fair one! Here’s my reply:

Thanks for your comment – an important point, indeed! I shall endeavor to put a few female villains into the mix in upcoming whiteboards.

Maybe I’ll call one of them Sue!
