The Presidents Club

At Hewlett Packard, Melbourne, in 1983 they decided to inaugurate The Presidents Club. Membership to this exclusive club was only attainable to those salesmen who'd topped the monthly sales figures.

In addition to commissions which were beyond the dreams of avarice membership in this exclusive club entitled the annointed one to a months parking privilege in a car parking space right next to the front door; delineated in gold paint and even closer than the Managing Directors space.

One night on overtime (yes, there was once a time when we got paid more to work extra hours - hard though it is to believe now) we discovered the tins of gold paint. We couldn't resist! We painted maybe a quarter of the car parking spaces in gold before we ran out of paint!
