UK News: David Brent to Train Microsoft

"I'm a monopolist first, geek second... probably an entertainer third..."

Wernham Hogg's managerial genius that is David Brent has been employed by Microsoft to train its staff in personal development. Although the character's creator Ricky Gervais has previously shunned such work, it appears the opportunity to work with Microsoft was too much to turn down and the comedy star has put together a video entitled I'm back - and this time it's personal development.

A spokeswoman for Microsoft told the BBC: "We can't provide information about Ricky Gervais' project at Microsoft. It is an internal thing and not something which we like to publicise. It is something we do for staff and staff only."

Anybody who witnessed David Brent's truly awful dance routine in series two, episode five, here, and has also seen Steve Ballmer's crowd pleasing repertoire of the grotesque, here, may find it difficult to choose between the two men, but we believe Brent has the edge... just.

A massive TIA to the first to get hold of a d/l of the training sesh!
