Diary: Water-cooler Monitor

What topics have the industry been discussing this week?


Who will get kicked off COI Communications' 2 hours 37 mins

creative roster? Industry figures don't fancy

the chances of Ogilvy & Mather, Saatchi & Saatchi,

Fallon or Lowe. Most expect Vallance Carruthers

Coleman Priest and Clemmow Hornby Inge to join.

Those Jamster ads. Rarely has Campaign received 98 hours 59 mins

so many unprompted complaints about any subject.

Peter McGuinness. There's a new face at McCann 21 mins 18 secs

Erickson. When you've got a management team as

expensive as that assembled by Rupert Howell, you

can't blame the bill-payers for installing one of their

own to keep an eye on things.

Will Orr. His departure from Mother confused many. 9 mins 12 secs

We thought Mother didn't employ account directors.
