Step 1: Be a good host

Marvel Defenders

Send your guest to a luxurious waiting room, make sure the heat is up to keep it comfortable. Have plenty of salty snacks and plenty of delicious beverages available.

Step 2: Call Security

As you are about to meet with an unstable competitor with a vengeance you can’t very well put your employees in danger, the important ones anyway. Instead you grab your most respectable looking security officers and a few interns, put them in nice suits, sit them around a conference table and voila.Throw in a couple of notebooks to realism.

Step 3: Enter the guest

Guide your guest to the boardroom but don’t worry about keeping them waiting a little extra. They didn’t have an appointment after all. Make sure to avoid the restrooms. Bring them into the boardroom.

Step 4: The game begins

Have all board members stare awkwardly at guest. Ensure that the guest speaks first – POWER MOVE!

Step 5: Interrupt

Watch from sidelines and right as your guest gets to the point sneak in and grab his arm familiarly. Leave your hand on him just long enough for it to become uncomfortable then allow him to continue.

Step 7: You own him now!
