Take a lead from Carat and recharge your batteries over the summer holidays

School's out for the summer - and so too, for once, is the sunshine. As teachers across the country pick themselves up and begin the healing process, spurred on no doubt by the promise that Michael Gove will not be returning to class in September, thoughts invariably turn to our own great escapes.

Ad business needs more like its rebel with a cause

Ad business needs more like its rebel with a cause

A recent reunion at my village school was a reminder of how much your earliest years shape you. I once made a stab at a career in advertising, but it finished before it began - me having been stumped by the second question on Young & Rubicam's 1994 graduate application form. It asked, simply enough, "If you were an animal, what would you be and why?" - but I didn't want to be a dolphin like, I assumed, everyone else.

Tech viewpoint on personalisation

Tech viewpoint on personalisation

It's the most overused word in marketing and advertising in 2014, so let's drill down to what personalisation actually means.

Global viewpoint from Hamburg

Global viewpoint from Hamburg

What does the word independent mean to you? For years, I grew in the fertile environment of London's digital agencies, so I can't read the word without seeing the smiles of suddenly rich agency founders as they hand the keys for their funky empire to a delighted grey-haired man in a suit and tie. The script goes like this: you found a business, you build, you promote, you make coy, ambiguous pronouncements about how you have no current plans to sell, and then you sell.
