Summary of the year so far: "Right deep breath.  It’s been a grand start to the year.

We’ve picked up some shiny new clients. The fundraising account for Alzheimer’s Society, the Land Rover retail marketing account and the John Lewis Financial Services account. We’re also in the midst of pitching for two major pieces of business.

We’ve picked up some shiny new cabinet fillers. Over 40 awards and accolades already, notably at the DMAs when were on the stage rather a lot, and the Brand Republic Digital Awards; winning three Golds (no one else beat that) across 3 clients (no one else did that).

We’ve passionately championed Direct. Through our Direct is Dead event in Cannes, blogs, articles and general ranting.

We’ve hired and promoted some serious talent. Snaffling Richard Pentin from TMW as our new strategy partner, hiring the multi-awarded and multi-tattooed Sven Kaifel as head of design and promoting Victoria Fox and Jonathan Goodman to CEO and MD respectively.

And we all now own a cork hat.

Yep, we launched LIDA Sydney and it’s off to a bonza start with two new client wins."
