Most ridiculous SKO stories

This could have happened to you. This could have been something you heard from your degenerate roommate. This could be a company-wide legend that is so hyperbolic it has a life of it's own with no known origin. We will never know for sure but give it your best shot.

Our VP of HR got so drunk they couldnโ€™t walk off stage without help after giving out an award to an employee.ย

My coworker decided to get wasted during the lunch break. It got him fired because he heckled the president of an NHL team that was our speaker.ย

Most ridiculous thing I have heard at our SKOs: An SDR to tried to get the CRO and President to do blow with him, and then called them p****s for refusing.

Most ridiculous thing I personally have done: Ripped my suit pants in half at the post SKO party, asked the club staff for duct tape, fixed said pants, and continued to party.ย 


Vegas SKOs just hit different.

Got hammered with the CEO of Kronos...he unbuttoned his shirt, downed a bag of hot cheetos and chased it with whiskey. Didn't work for him but what a champ

I heard all of this second hand but supposedly the CMOย 

1) Expensed a room for her hair stylist

2) Was seen by the CEO aggressively making out with her young boyfriend who somehow was invited to an executive dinner.

3) Proceeded to have an explosive fight in the hotel lobby with the aforementioned boy toy and DEMANDED a new room be given to him under the company's account.

She was gone shortly after. Though she didn't even rank in the top 10 crazies at that place.

To be fair, you can't put a price on a killer hair nightย

Let me guess - even with all of that you still didnโ€™t get the webinars and case studies you needed?

Maybe an urban myth passed through the annals (heh) of company history but...

In Vegas. Dude goes too hard. Feeling invigorated by the moment, he hires someone for some personal extracurricular activities. They steal his work laptop from his room. He freaks out and reports it...in full detail.ย 

Sadly honestly was not rewarded

An SDR at our kickoff was so fucked up that he sleep walked out of his hotel room (looking for the bathroom) in nothing but his briefs. He was found by hotel security in the hallway sleeping half naked.ย

The sales director rented a chalet for the weekend and just ended up being a binge drinking SKO with the SD hooking up with one of her reps.

This one happened. A couple of the sales VPs procured a bunch of beer and liquor after the bars closed and there were probably 20 of us drinking in the lobby (no, the hotel was not pleased but they were making an astronomical amount of money off of us).

Around 3:00am or so this rep who was probably 24-25 and with just a few months at the company passes out. One of the the VPs has a lead gen guy take him up to his room. 15 minutes later, he comes back down and is slurring his speech, not functional, etc. The same VP frog marches the guy back up to his floor and tells him to go to his room.

The guy who originally took him up to his room goes up for some reason (I think it was to make sure this rep isn't going to get himself canned by coming back down). Turns out the guy never made it into his room. He passed out in the hallway with his wallet five or so feet from him. In the card slot of the door was not his room key but a IHOP gift card. It apparently took another 15 minutes to get this guy in his room.

Me and a few other AEโ€™s went to the strip club after a lively night SKO event and convinced an executive who was their alone to spend $15k on his corporate card so we could all have private champagne rooms and dancers. Words canโ€™t describe how crazy it got. Would have loved to heard how his expense report went that month. I know people could expense strip clubs in the 90s but this was 2016 lol
