[asset|aid=1151|format=image|formatter=asset|title=MTTF2010.jpg|width=300|height=183|resizable=true|align=right]I tried. I mean I asked around and I really tried to think of a company where the Top Leader goes out to the company, address the group (open to any Employee) and then take questions and answers. Okay, there are probably several I am not thinking of, but of the ones that I am not thinking of, how many of the Employee groups tailgate before it? Only one that I know of—Southwest Airlines!

 Tents, grilling, music, bands—everything needed for a successful tailgate party—before going in to hear Gary Kelly, our President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board. He gives a prepared speech and answer questions—any question! But that is not what this podcast is about. This episode of Red Belly Radio is about the party before what has become more like a concert than a corporate message.
