I only have two real criticisms.
First crit - This dialogue seems awkward and unrealistic to me:
His new droid roll out cut costs and upped production by fifteen percent!
Let's hear it for our CEO!
It seems odd to me because it doesn't sound like a real introduction. We need to hear the company name and his name, imo. And you the summary of his success seems wonky, too.
I would suggest: "In one year alone, his successful negotiation with labour personnel -- "
Some booing in audience.
"-- has revolutionized our profit margins and his visionary approach to cutting inefficiencies has resulted in an unprecedented stock increase of fifteen percent!"
Wild clapping from audience.
"Let's hear it for the brilliant CEO of ShawnWriting Industries, Elias Haverbrook the Third!"
I guess it comes down to a real CEO introduction would have more raving about his success. Picture Donald Trump raving about his tremendous profits and tremendous successess, etc. And they would definitely have his name and the company's name in there. The company's name would be plastered all over the event. And giving him a fancy name would further paint him as separated from the common man outside.
My second crit is the ending seems to fall short of your build-up. I don't know what I was expecting, but protesters storming the place seems like a meh kind of ending to the story you crafted this far. I guess I'm not sure what the main idea of your story is. Is it about them making the mistake of holding their gala at the factories where they oppress their workers? Are the workers actually oppressed or were they just replaced by the droids?
My suggestion is have him squinting into the lights. He sees the boy's body, but because of the lights blinding him he thinks he's looking at a droid. "Is that -- oh dear, our new serving model. Don't let the press see that, people will be up in arms about warranties."
I dunno. Feel free to disregard what I'm saying.
