WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
JWT's decision to close its Chicago office after 118 25 mins
years is a sad sign of the times. In the 80s, it
employed more than 800 people and was the network's
largest office. What led to its demise? And who's going
to be the next casualty?

Bartle Bogle Hegarty's staff have shown their 10 mins
camaraderie after 99.5 per cent of them voted in favour
of taking nine days of unpaid leave (representing a
3.5 per cent pay cut) instead of agency redundancies.
Would staff at other agencies vote in the same way?

Omnicom Media Group's Philippa Brown and 12 mins
Mindshare's Nick Waters will represent the UK on the
Media Lions jury at Cannes this year. Are they a good
or bad choice?
