WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Dentsu. Finally, the giant stirs. Jim Kelly has a remit 45 mins
to expand and a budget to invest. The industry could do
with a bit of that right now.
Ogilvy. Paul O'Donnell says he wants to give the 15 mins
agency's creative chiefs a chance to turn things around.
But the clock is ticking.
Halfway through the year and we're starting to think 2 hrs 6 mins
about candidates for our agencies of the year. And
agencies of the decade. Decisions, decisions.
Thank goodness for COI. In a sea of budgets cuts, 7 mins
COI has come up trumps with a 35 per cent hike in its
adspend. Phew. Let's hope the Opposition parties don't
kick up too much of a stink and force a cut in spending
next time round.
