WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Craig Inglis joining John Lewis' marketing 5 mins 12 secs
department. He's known to have been a great fan of
James Murphy and co, while he was at Virgin and they
at Rainey Kelly. Could his new job bode well for
Adam & Eve's burgeoning client list?

Did you see what Orange UK's new chief executive, 11 mins 30 secs
Tom Alexander, was saying about Fallon's advertising
in The Sunday Times? Well, it wasn't very flattering,
in distinct contrast to his comments on Mother's work.

Shame that James Purnell has been promoted out 39 mins 2 secs
of his Culture Secretary seat; he showed signs of
appreciating adland and understanding its potential.

Homebase. Yes it looks price-led, but £27 million 14 mins 11 secs
in billings still sounds nice.
