Pity the marketer who upsets sales promotion company 141, newly
refreshed after its annual away day. Instead of a luxury hotel, chairman
Peter Crossing chose Bisley shooting ground for his 70 staffers, all of
whom now claim to be crack shots.
Mix is in favour of agencies taking a tough, pro-active stance with
their clients, but this is ridiculous. All 70 141-ers slept in a large
military dormitory where the real star of the weekend was a pair of
silky French knickers found in the middle of the floor.
As nobody claimed the garment, Crossing insisted that every member of
staff should try it on, in true Cinderella style, in a public bid to
determine ownership - a bid which proved unsuccessful.
