So much so that the agency took on six editors of Campaign at once last week. Nigel Bogle invited the editors past and present to sup with BBH's senior team at the River Cafe in celebration of the agency's 30 years on the planet. Claire Beale and five of her predecessors, including Bernard Barnett, Dominic Mills and Stefano Hatfield, dined with BBHers including Sir John Hegarty, John Bartle, Rosie Arnold and Simon Sherwood. Reminisces included the time when the agency's founding fathers were about to break away from TBWA and met Barnett secretly in La Meridien hotel to give him the scoop.
