WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Linus Karlsson leaving Mother NY for the McCann 1 hr 20 mins
network. How will he straddle London and New York
and who will be McCann's new ECD to support him,
now Simon Learman and Brian Fraser have gone?

The fallout over the dog scene in the John Lewis 55 mins
Christmas ad. Dog fanatics have had the final say and
the ad has been re-edited. It's getting harder to
predict what will cause offence.

The Post Office's marketing director, Gary Hockey- 20 mins
Morley, is stepping down despite it being in the middle
of an ad review. The business seemed set to stay with
Mother, but will this change things?

Another COI pitch has reared its head. Is there cause 10 mins
for roster agencies to feel a little more confident?
