Lighter side: Is this the best send-off ever?

by Janie Smith01 Aug 2014
There aren’t too many CEOs who get a global celebration on their last day, but Mark Sebba’s surprise send-off would rival a royal celebration.

Sebba stepped down after 11 years as CEO of UK clothing company Net-A-Porter and the Daily Mail reported that he was greeted by cheering employees, who danced to a parody of the Aloe Black song, The Man.

Workers held up signs saying, “Mark Sebba. You’re the man” as he walked through the office, only to be confronted by a big screen showing footage of his employees in Manhattan, New Jersey, Hong Kong and Shanghai dancing and waving.

Costumed dancers showed Sebba to his desk while a group of men played the drums and he was presented with a cup of coffee and a microphone, the Mail reported.

His reaction?

“Thank you everybody. I’m a bit overwhelmed. But I feel like getting back to work.”

Check out the amazing send-off video below and tell us what you think. Would you give your boss a farewell like this?

    My company did! I left Virgin Blue after 8 years and they did a video for me to Dancing Queen by ABBA and all of the footage I had been in over my eight years!

    It was brilliant and means alot to me even 6 years after I left!
