Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Dramatic change at Fallon. How will the agency 50 mins
survive the loss of the co-founders Richard Flintham
and Laurence Green, its executive creative director
and chairman respectively? And can the new chief
executive, Gail Gallie, turn things around?

The end of the recession. Interpublic's Mediabrands 17 mins
division Magnaglobal has doubled its expected growth
forecast for UK advertising revenue to 6.2 per cent.
Time to get the Krug out?

Ads with animals. Is sticking a cute, furry beast in 14 mins
your ad a sure-fire route to success? It seems many
agencies and advertisers think so. Just last week, we had
several animal-strewn campaigns, including the Argos
walrus, the Thinkbox dog and 100 Ikea cats.
