WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Unilever media review. Despite spending the past 1 hr 4 mins
few weeks dismissing reports of a pitch as
"pure speculation", Unilever has U-turned, admitting
it has been less than fulsome with the truth: it is
holding a review of its global media account. Expect
some cut-(their own)-throat price competition.

JWT. Apparently, the agency is about to sign Guy 20 mins
Hayward as its CEO. He clearly likes a challenge. But
it'll take real magic to restore JWT's reputation.

Nabs. VBS's Nick Bampton takes over as the new 7 mins
chairman this week. The charity needs the industry more
than ever but can adland meet the challenge?

Michael Birkin's quiet departure from Omnicom. We 2 mins
assume John Wren is determined to stay put, then.
