After an employee volleyball game on the beach, Conrad created a little competition between Daniel and Tyler. The first one to close a $20 million dollar deal at a “New Investor” party got a full commission. (Newbies at Grayson Global didn’t get a full commission)
The reason for Tyler’s choice was obvious. Nolan was flush with cash, young, and probably more willing to make a risky investment over an older, more experienced individual. Nolan was way too smart to fall for that, but Emily convinced him to play along for now. She needed Tyler preoccupied while she worked a different angle with Daniel. Tyler would do anything to get to the top, including sleeping with a potential investor. He eventually regretted selling himself like this because Nolan caught the entire thing on camera. Conrad might be unscrupulous, but he didn’t allow his employees to pimp themselves out to clients.
At the New Investor party, Daniel introduced Emily to a powerful CEO named Satoshi Takeda. It turned out Emily already knew him; Takeda was Emily’s teacher in the art of revenge. Emily acted as a “translator” at the party, but in reality the decision was already made. Daniel was going to win and Tyler was going to lose
