More Mattison Mirth

This post is not really about revenue assurance, but I think it will provoke a giggle or two. The Mattison clan have branched out from their overpromising and underwhelming Global Revenue Assurance Professional’s Association and the RA Academy to start yet another business venture from their garage in Oakwood Hills, Illinois, USA. This one promises to train anybody in telecoms about anything in telecoms – an ambitious goal. The new website has all the usual Mattison hallmarks: talk about being global, lots of sales spin, not much substance. One thing did catch my eye though. Take a close look at the website’s banner:

Before they conquer the world (yet again) perhaps the family Mattison needs to invest in a dictionary. That is not how you spell ‘conveniently’ – not even close! I know they are Americans, but before they become educators, perhaps they should go back to school and revise their English :P
