Get Curious Corporate Catchphrase roundup

Corporate Catchphrase roundup


From an innocent lunchtime conversation to twelve weeks of #CorporateCatchphrase – and still going strong!

For those of you who haven’t followed along; each Monday afternoon I used to release an image depicting a well known corporate phrase on social media. I invited people to guess what the saying was and to claim some satisfaction when they were right! I saw the same people coming back for more each week and had others telling me how they’re still trying to figure it out before they comment.

It was fun. And who doesn’t need more fun in their lives?!

I've done a round up of the first twelve weeks of Corporate Catchphrase which went by so quickly. Take a look at what featured in those twelve weeks along with some funny guesses that were made…!

Week 1 – Thrown under a bus

There were some strong, yet unusual guesses for this one including “Get onboard” and “Catching someone who is falling off the bus” – which I kind of like because it sounds like a nice thing to do even if it’s not a phrase we hear often!


Week 2 – Starter for 10

My favourite wrong answer on this one was “10 minute meal” – because it’s pretty close – except I’d have drawn the 0 as a clock face 😉


Week 3 – Ducks in a row

Week 4 – Low hanging fruit

I think this one had a few comedy answers submitted including “If an apple falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” and “Eleven green apples hanging on a tree, and if one green apple would accidentally fall, there’d be ten green apples hanging on a tree”  And then there was “hanging on by a thread” which is pretty good in terms of the relation to the image, even if it wasn’t what was in my mind.


Week 5 – Benchmark

This one stumped a few people!


Week 6 – Thinking outside the box

Week 7 – Results driven

Week 8 – On my radar

I thought this one was a little tricky, but people continue to surprise me with their corporate language knowledge!


Week 9 – Singing from the same hymn sheet / singing the same song

Week 10 – Blue sky thinking

Week 11 – Open door policy

I knew this one would elicit some strong feelings…!!


Week 12 ……. Can you guess?

Give this one a go and pop a comment below!

I had so much fun drawing these and reading peoples responses, thanks to all of you who joined in!
