CAMPAIGN DIARY: IPA makes house calls to liven its Xmas party

We’ve all seen Through the Keyhole with Loyd Grossman and correctly guessed which celebrities’ houses were being shown.

We’ve all seen Through the Keyhole with Loyd Grossman and correctly

guessed which celebrities’ houses were being shown.



But would you be so clever if it was the house of, say, M&C Saatchi’s

joint chief executive, Moray MacLennan?



MacLennan, along with WCRS’s Robin Wight, M&C Saatchi’s David Kershaw,

BMP DDB’s Chris Powell, Walker Media’s Christine Walker, TBWA GGT Simons

Palmer’s Carl Johnson and Leagas Delaney’s Bruce Haines, agreed to allow

the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising to creep around their

luxurious pads to provide entertainment for its Christmas party on

Monday.



TBWA’s client services director, Gary Lace, stepped in as the host after

Grossman ducked out at the last minute and proved to be capable at

compering, if not comedy.



Amanda Walsh, the managing director of Walsh Trott Chick Smith, proved

more than useful to her partners, Euro RSCG Wnek Gosper’s Mark Wnek and

J.



Walter Thompson’s Mark Robinson, on the panel.



Walsh seemed to have a sixth sense when it came to guessing the

residents of the featured houses, even naming the postal districts that

the houses were in.



And before any gossiping gets going, it’s only because she’s had dinner

in most of them.
