Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
The end of England's World Cup hopes. Could our 4 hrs 10 mins
embarrassing defeat at the hands of a young German
team affect consumer confidence and set the
advertising recovery back? And should Fabio Capello
get the boot?

DLKW Lowe. If Lowe wants to get back to its superb 1hr 59 mins
creative roots, it will need to do more than just buy
the DLKW talent and clients. Or is Lowe resigned to
relinquishing its creative reputation forever.

Cannes' attempts to make even more money out of 51 mins
agencies by piling on more and more new awards has paid
off for the Brits. Thank goodness for the new Lions for
Good and Film Craft awards, which afforded Abbott Mead
Vickers BBDO and DDB Grands Prix respectively. Face was
saved, finally.
