Sixty grand? Someone is using the old noodle, looks like. But it may not be the execs.

Other execs come to the training because their companies have been trashed on Twitter or other sites.

Another top leader hired someone to show her how to shop on her smartphone.

If anyone knows Final Draft--email me?
