WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Who will run D&AD? A very difficult brief, as 11 mins 28 secs
testified by the suspicious, and sudden, exit
of Michael Hockney.

There's nothing quite like being squeezed out of ITV. 39 mins 17 secs
The former chief executive, Charles Allen, has
pocketed more than £5 million for the honour
(although the sum pales in comparison with Michael
Green's £15 million severence deal).

Plans for Cannes. To yacht or not to yacht? That is 8 mins 12 secs
the question.

Simon Thompson's move from Motorola to 51 mins 42 secs
lastminute.com. The man is associated with awards
glory ("cog" etc), but lastminute certainly is not.
He's halved his UK ad budget. Strange move.
