TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
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.

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.
