Business News: The head of a group set up to provide initiatives for new businesses has admitted he doesn’t really know or understand what he actually does for a living.

“My business card says I’m the chairman, but outside of telling people younger than me to make tea and bring me biscuits I’m not exactly clear what my role is,” said George Mills, of the Great Yarmouth Better Business Development Initiative Foundation Group (GYBBIFG).

“I have my own designated parking space right next to the office entrance and I get a very healthy payslip at the end of the month, but apart from that I’m just trying to style it out really.”

Mills says he has been in the job for nearly 3 years and that in most of his meetings he can get away with just dropping business slang that people agree with, but probably don’t understand either.

“I told one man the other day that he needed to get ‘his ducks in a row’ if he was to consider expanding his business. He seemed to agree with me but I’ve got no idea what that actually means.”

“I then told him to ‘consider the view from 10,000 feet’ but for all I know he’ll just rent a light aircraft and spend the afternoon staring at the roof of his office.”
