WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?

THE TALK TIME SPENT
So, Focus has put its £10 million ad account up for 13 mins 24
secs pitch just weeks after its rival Homebase. Good news
for the Homebase losers who can repackage their pitches and
go for Focus.

One of the longest-running pitches in history has 28 mins 25 secs
been put on hold yet again. VisitWales has decided to
postpone its pitch for a second time owing to funding
issues. Honestly, is it worth it?

A million-pound pay-off for Fru Hazlitt? That's the 22 mins 27 secs
rumour if the deal goes through. However, it's also
thought that she will end her time at GCap, begging
the question: where next?

Adam & Eve has had a great run of wins, but surely 37 mins 28 secs
the fledgling agency needs to make some ads now.
