Diary: Ogilvy must live without 'secret weapon' Bunce

Ogilvy Advertising has had its share of wins and losses over the past decade, but none will be felt more keenly than the imminent departure of Connie Bunce.

For longer than anyone cares to remember, Bunce has held a multi-departmental role, fuelling the agency's brightest minds and described as a "secret weapon", a potential pitch winner or a "chemistry meeting fissionary reactor".

"She's always been known to lend grads and creative directors a couple of quid until payday," one colleague reflects.

So where next for Bunce? Fallon, Wieden & Kennedy or even a move across the pond? Nope. Ogilvy's legendary tea-lady is off to Wiltshire to live with her daughter.

The agency will be throwing an all-agency party to see her off on Thursday. "It has always been Connie's wish to appear in Campaign," one Ogilvy insider said. Diary is happy to make one adland wish come true.
