Every company has that one person who loves to hear themselves talk at meetings. This person offers oh-so clever insights that are nothing more than jargon-laden platitudes. Helping us know that we are not alone in our disdain for this individual comes a chatbot with a horrible, but appropriate name: The Douchebag Strategist. Some sample gems:

Need to reframe the problem? “We need a MVP framework to show how this rich media experience will boost sales.”

Need a strategy statement? “The strategy is to engage millennials through post-personalisation intercontextuality.”

Or, in search of an audience insight? “Working moms are super into mobile-only curated content.”
