WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Carat's jaw-dropping Kellogg win. Rumour has it 1hr 40 mins
that the whole thing kicked off when Mindshare started
sniffing around the consolidated account - a move that
spectacularly backfired.

With IPG, WPP and Omnicom reportedly preparing to 43 mins 36 secs
axe thousands of jobs, it looks as though forecasts of
an industry bloodbath may be depressingly accurate.

Comforting to see adland holding its own in the 20 mins 19 secs
New Year Honours. A knighthood for the former
BMP DDB boss Chris Powell and a CBE for the Abbott
Mead Vickers Group chairman, Cilla Snowball, are well
deserved.

Does anybody's New Year's resolution not involve 15 mins 51 secs
detoxing? Life's looking miserable enough as it is.
