Oh dear. The British management teams just DON'T GET IT. You can't just get a bloke in the office to bring his digital camera in then stand in front of the plainest and whitest piece of wall or the blinds.
And we're all for casual shots - but you can only dispense with the jacket OR tie. Not both. Lose both and you may as well send out a photo of the vaguely retarded teenager from the post room.
Photos like this are why the UK is considered a third-world country in business terms.
