Conan O’Brien has always had aspirations beyond comedy. He’s a tad power-mad, it seems to me.

However, after his ignominious exit from NBC and his descent onto cable, he must have felt that his corporate brand had been tarnished and his power-base resembled the Colosseum in Rome.

He decided to take the first steps toward rehabilitation by joining LinkedIn.

The minute he launched his profile, he promised he would “conquer” the site. Like many a Roman in times gone by, he has now commenced his assault. He has become a LinkedIn influencer.

You must have read at least one LinkedIn influencer post. They are written by esteemed humans who try to explain to you in simple words why they deserve more esteem than you.

Conan’s first Influencer post appeared on Sunday. A powerful statement it made, too.
