Woolard was able to coax Jobs to agree that his role as an advisor would be a very active one.
伍拉德成功地说服乔布斯同意,他担任的这个“顾问”将是个很活跃的角色。
Jobs approved a statement saying that he had "agreed to step up my involvement with Apple for up to 90 days,
乔布斯批准了一个声明,说他已经“同意在苹果深入工作90天,
helping them until they hire a new CEO."
帮助他们,直到他们找到新的CEO”。
The clever formulation that Woolard used in his statement was that Jobs was coming back "as an advisor leading the team."
而伍拉德在这个声明里用了个巧妙的说法,乔布斯回来“做一个统领团队的顾问”。
Jobs took a small office next to the boardroom on the executive floor, conspicuously eschewing Amelio's big corner office.
乔布斯用了行政楼层董事会会议室旁边的一间小办公室,明显地避开阿梅里奥在角落里的大办公室。
