Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Is it that much of a surprise that the 400-strong 2 hrs 51 mins
Bartle Bogle Hegarty, which is rumoured to be in
trouble on a number of accounts, is shedding 40 jobs?
The pay cuts earlier this year were a valiant attempt
to stave off the effects of the recession, but they
always seemed like a temporary ploy.

The demise of thelondonpaper. Could it trigger more 2 hrs 4 mins
closures in the newspaper industry?

The remarriage of Fallon and Innocent. When they 1 hr 23 mins
first worked together, some great press campaigns
followed, but can the brand's new marketing director
really shrug off its "nightmare client" reputation?

Peperami's move to ditch Lowe in favour of "crowd- 32 mins 8 secs
sourcing". What on earth can Unilever be thinking?
