Diary: Water-cooler Monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?

THE TALK TIME SPENT

WPP backing Lord Mandelson's new consultancy 58 mins
launch. The former CHI & Partners director is said to have
been working out of JWT London's offices ahead of the launch
so it will be interesting to see if his "dark arts" rub off
on the Knightsbridge shop.

Nick Bampton's return to TV sales at Channel 5. Can 43 mins
he build an effective relationship with his new boss
Stan Myerson?

Thomas Cook reappointing Arena Media after a 21 mins
lengthy media pitch. At least the agency didn't have to hand
over the proposed "signing-on fee".

"Movember" drawing to a close. No more speculation 12 mins
over whether contacts are sporting face furniture as a charity
gesture or a serious long-term commitment.
