Summary of the year so far: "The pianist Arthur Rubinstein said "Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back". Does the same apply to advertising and our agency? We love the R&D partnership with Queen Mary University and it’s already bearing fruit (www.liveson.org). We love setting up a new PR division within the agency that has vowed never to commission a survey. We love the fact we’re doing business differently by following Unilever’s ‘Doing Well by Doing Good’ mantra with One in Sixty (www.oneinsixty.co.uk). We love that internal promotions have secured the agency’s next generation of creative, planning and client handling talent. And boy do we love growing the business whilst keeping our sense of mischief. So come on then H2 you tease, we’re waiting… "

Awards won so far in 2013: "FWA (World Baking Day) Awwwards (World Baking Day) "
