CAMPAIGN DIARY: Sorrell plays divinely

Whatever you think of Martin Sorrell, it seems he’s got a few friends in high places.

friends in high places.



Last Sunday saw the annual cricket match between Ogilvy & Mather and its

parent company, WPP - an event approached with much trepidation by staff

on both sides.



The O&M team took the view that if they didn’t win, their ultimate boss

would be happy while their immediate superior would not. If they did

scoop the trophy, the highly competitive cricket-nut Sorrell wouldn’t be

best pleased.



Despite the fears and the struggle O&M had to recruit players - given

the delicate nature of the task - the match finally started.



Come lunchtime, O&M were 176-1 and looking good and the only thunder

around was in Sorrell’s eyes (although his team had still to bat).



Then, suddenly - and strangely - the heavens opened and the game was

called off. You have been warned.
