WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Bikini diets, beaches, party invitations ... Cannes 1 hr 39 mins
fever is upon us. Do you have the big invites
(DDB, Leo Burnett, Fallon BBQ)? Why isn't Traktor doing
a party? What UK films stand a chance of snatching the
Grand Prix?

Jobs for the boys. Birds Eye's Martin Glenn has 8 mins 49 secs
opted to shift his £15 million account to his
mates at AMV. Unlucky for BBH, which has done good
work on the brand. Still, this is a relationship business.

Alan Rutherford's new job at Digitas. Lucky old him. 18 mins 42 secs

Talk about a damp squibb. After a dramatic false 24 mins 51 secs
start and a fairly drawn-out pitch process, Sky has
decided to pretty much hire all the agencies that
pitched for its online account. Yawnarama. Luckily,
the ad pitch is shaping up to be a more exciting fight.
