repugnant public display of obsequious adulation towards an individual. Excessive flattery, for improving personal gains (social, professional, financial, sexual etc.)
Rapid promotion was gained by bum licking the managing director.
The man only mirrored the views of the other people around him because he was incapable of developing and announcing his own. He was a complete bum licker.
