WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
TBWA's outrageously handled sacking of Tim Lindsay. 2 hrs 4 mins
Bad enough to march him out of the office, worse to
so spectacularly cock up over the rebrand. How do
things like this make the business look to clients?

So Kellogg has fired JWT and put all its advertising 1 hr 22 mins
eggs into the Leo Burnett basket. But can it really be
true that Burnett's global chief, Tom Bernardin, is far
from popular at Kellogg's Battle Creek HQ? Rumour has it
he's effectively banned from the building.

There but for the grace ... WCRS sent the wrong News 49 mins
of the World ad copy to ITV for an ad slot that had been
booked into The X Factor. As you might imagine, The X Factor
is an expensive show to advertise in. So who should pay for
the mistake? An embarrassed WCRS is now negotiating its way
out of the mess.
