How about "Come to an Educational event intended to raise awareness of the possibilities of electric vehicles". Throw in a few displays of photos of how the technology works and perhaps including a historical perspective on electric vehicles and the problem is solved. No more test drives, but rather "hands on learning demonstrations".

Really; they probably got married, had kids, and got a life. Or developed some sort of interest outside of work. Or they just got their job and technology worked out to the point they don't have to work 60 hours a week to keep up. In short, they got a life. Assuming they are burnt out may be incorrect. You should also get a life.

They could have told the EU to get out. After seeing what lack of control of your own currency did to Greece, Italy, and Spain I've come to the conclusion the tight economic binding which is the EU is a bad idea. There are also no firewalls. It creates a situation where a country as small as Greece, Italy, or Spain can threaten to take down the entire global economy.

Wow, your original post fits my experience in my Blue days to a "t". I was going to swap serial numbers with you. I am now working at a Huge Plant and while Agile is badly done, partly due to the huge geographic nature of the projects, the environment and culture is very different.

Those who can, do; those who can't, simulate.
