Memorable Exit

How do you make your exit memorable? Well certainly not the way France's football hero Zinedine Zidane ended his glorious career

BBC has an Interesting article which suggest 10 things to do on the last day of your career .

·Use your leaving speech to deliver a verbal Zidane-style headbutt. Affairs, expenses scams, inflated bonuses, wigs, how the place has gone to the dogs.

·Leave a challenge for your successor.

·If David Beckham can cry when he's leaving his job (as England captain) then so can
I. Don't. Bad move.

·Leaving speech II. Talk at interminable length about your own glittering career - that time you really showed them who was boss over the faulty photocopier - and
deliver rambling anecdotes about characters who left years ago.

·Hand your identity dog tag to the craziest frother in the shopping centre and tell them where they can get free coffee and meet lots of new and hospitable friends.

·That "exit" interview. This will be the first time you've come across the gleaming 20-storey office block occupied by floor upon floor of the "human resources" team. It's your big chance to tell them exactly... Are they listening? Hello?
Umhhh some food for thoughts for our HR folks….just hope and pray that your next exits interview you don’t come across a Zidane fan. J
