Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Saatchi & Saatchi's Labour win. OK, so it won't help 29 mins 54 secs
the agency's bottom line, but it will certainly help
its standing in the market. Robert Senior will now
find recruitment of senior talent that much easier.

Jonathan Burley's promotion at Leo Burnett is 8 mins 6 secs
being well received. Promoting promptly, but not too
promptly, is always a good thing (and he writes a
mean Private View).

Adland now has two clients at the helms of two 28 mins 49 secs
big agencies, Neil Simpson at Publicis and David
Patton at Grey. Is this the beginning of a trend?
They're both certainly in for a shock.

Michael Grade's chit-chat at Cambridge. Calling for 3 mins 28 secs
Channel 4 to be privatised. What gall!
