Have you ever wanted to use a word, but were told not to? In marketing there are certain buzzwords that are considered faux-pas. They are called fluffy, “hype-bloated” (not sure if that’s a real word, but I read it somewhere) and just plain overused.

It also gives them a chance to reflect and to create and consolidate ideas.
