Sir John Hegarty has said agencies should take their own advice and act more like brands, in the latest installation of Campaign's Talking Inspiration series.

Speaking as part of the series, hosted by Marc Nohr, Hegarty said: "One of the problems we have with agencies and communication business is that not enough of them believe themselves as brands – a belief of what they do and don't do.

He said: "We spend all our lives advising companies to be brands and then suddenly, when it comes to ourselves, we're all things to all people.

 "All brands need to be defined".
