Since the only evidence you have is a statement by someone who heard someone on the radio say something about a meeting he may or may not have attended, that "Given" is a pretty weak foundation.

You've gone from a reed-thin "Given" to certitude in one short paragraph. :-)

I agree. But rather than seeing this as evidence of the need for an "enforced culture change" (whatever that means), I think it bolsters my skepticism about the veracity and accuracy of the "Given" on which you rely. The scenario as described just doesn't ring true to me.
