Thank you for taking the time to read this website.
If you are like most people, you have been duped at least once into believing the best in someone only to find out later that they were not what they represented.
Many of us are children of parents who may have neglected or even abused us. We ended up attracting other people into our lives who played out exactly the same roles. Often we are unaware of these dynamics.
Not many of us want to admit we have been gullible or abused. Yuk! Who wants to look like a sucker? Chump? Easy Mark? No one! And yet we end up encountering and entering into everyday relationships with people who are popularly known as Narcissists, Psychopaths or as Machiavellians. These are also known as the Dark Triad.
Many of these traits and characteristics are difficult to see and they can be represented by many of the people we know, love and trust. And yet, we can be very blind to seeing them.
They are often charming. Smooth operators. Always have a good story to tell. Always have an answer or justification for everything.
Among the top ten professions that attract Narcissists are CEOs and Surgeons.
We have been involved with Vivdés Ltd. from its founding in 2003 by four partners through to its Involuntary Liquidation in 2012. The story of this Company is the story of Narcissism, greed, and self-interest passed off as persistence, doing what is right and wanting to make a difference. To cover up and avoid responsibility, a strategy of blame and pass the buck has been used.
Yes, the Company was run by a Board of Directors. The Managing Director role was like a revolving door.
Dr. Malcolm Linsell was the Executive Chairman and shareholder of this company at the time of its failure due to losing a $10 million dollar judgment to Creative Technology Ltd. Who was the Executive Chairman of the company at the time of signing the lease and throughout the lawsuit? You guessed it, Dr. Malcolm Linsell.
Life was lost, life savings were lost, and the true story is stranger than fiction.
Here on these pages, we will tell the story of the Company, its people and the innocent victims of lies, deceit and Narcissism on steroids.
Once you are fully informed, you can make up your own mind.
