Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Lowe's new staff strategy: "We don't need a 22 mins 10 secs
new-business chief, but will share responsibility
among other staffers. We don't need a new chief
executive, but will share responsibility among other
staffers." What next? No need for a cleaner?

Tonight's D&AD. Is it black Pencil time for Cadbury's 41 mins 17 secs
"gorilla"? Or will it, and the rest of the UK creative
work, be left out in the cold?

Now Jerry Buhlmann's finally got the top job at Aegis, 18 mins 13 secs
will he start to relax and show his softer side?

So it's official: Virgin Trains is reviewing its 39 mins 48 secs
creative out of Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R.
Many think other Virgin brands will follow, in
the post-Murphy, Golding, Priest era.
