You’re at a conference with the senior partner you want to impress. You’re meeting in the hotel bar, a swanky old-school joint. Lots of wood and brass. You’re both just supposed to go over the day’s work, then look at tomorrow’s breakout sessions. Easy and, as an addendum, peasy. You meet your boss at the bar.
