Diary: Water-cooler Monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK
THE TALK TIME SPENT
The $8 threshold. IPG's share price dip on Friday, 1 hr 54 mins
when it fell below $8, opens the group up for
takeover. Michael Roth's cleaned up the group's books,
so potential bidders needn't fear any more skeletons in
closets. One to keep a very close eye on ...

Stephen Woodford's deal. So, did DDB buy him out of 1 hr 57 mins
WCRS? Has he been given share options? Omnicom is not
known for its hugely generous packages, so whatever the
deal, it probably reflects Woodford's desire to leave
WCRS and, well, Peter Scott.

Joshua's M&G win. Belated congratulations after 17 mins 31 secs
rival trade rags kept awarding it to Andrews Aldridge.

Asda's Richard Hodgson moving to Waitrose. So what 21 mins 11 secs
were all those agency talks he's been holding about?

WC - main text. Style for the explanation of the thing 0 hours 00 mins
being discussed. Time spend is a char style
