Business Performance League 20 May 1996

No change in the top ten, although J. Walter Thompson have sneaked up to 11th with the Law Society task. The biggest win of the week - Knight Leach Delaney’s Debenhams coup - has yet to propel KLD into the table because it has joined the list of account gains in my ‘client confirmation pending’ tray.

No change in the top ten, although J. Walter Thompson have sneaked up to

11th with the Law Society task. The biggest win of the week - Knight

Leach Delaney’s Debenhams coup - has yet to propel KLD into the table

because it has joined the list of account gains in my ‘client

confirmation pending’ tray.



So, if you’re out there, would the new-business directors of the

following agencies contact us with written support from the client for

their budgetary claims about the following: Banks Hoggins O’Shea

(Kingsbury), Walsh Trott Chick Smith (Sunday Express), Euro RSCG Wnek

Gosper (Airbus Industrie), KLD (Debenhams) and BST-BDDP (Le Shuttle).



If a client refuses to confirm a figure, we will have to enter into

arbitration. Be warned: all those found to be grossly overclaiming when

the Register-Meal figures emerge will be exposed in this column.
