Business speak - mind furniture

My wife, who works for the IOD, this morning sent me these three examples of actual phrases, some of her clients had heard recently.

I wonder, can we synagistically run some ideas up the flagpole (come up with some more)?

"take this thought up the strategic staircase"

"we need to re-arrange our mind furniture"

"a colleague of mine recently told me he was having a 'cube built' that would give him 'total visibility'. I asked him if he meant that there is a database that gives him information. Apparently there is"

which I have warmed to, is right on the satirical case of this sort of crapo management speak:)

"evolve the organisation's name and new brand platform" is one I came across. What is a brand platform?

This lines from a story about Katie Price (neé Jordan) being dropped by her management surely is in line for a business speak award...

"During that time we have worked hard to build Katie as a successful individual and brand, moving her from a glamour model and repositioning her as the country's foremost female celebrity"
