WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
The Halifax calling a review? We thought Delaney 31 mins 1 sec
Lund Knox Warren & Partners and Halifax were
inseparable. Timing is, as they say, everything.
And we're admiring the way news of DLKW's AA loss
and the Halifax repitch has only come out after it's
completed its earn-out. Well done, chaps.

The MediaCom/Group M restructure. Nice to 38 mins 43 secs
see a Brit get the top global job at MediaCom.
Nevertheless, it seems more attention has been focused
on his successor at Group M in the UK, Nick Theakstone.
The fact that Theakstone was Allan's number two in the
UK has done little to abate adland's collective raised
eyebrow.

Late Cannes planning. Oh shit. Many of the best 12 mins 23 secs
hotels and restaurants are already fully booked.
