George Parker – live! – on Big Dumb Holding Companies

Some years ago my friend George Parker of Adscam fame spoke at the US 4A’s conference in San Fancisco on, among other matters, his favoured themes of Big Dumb Agencies and, his blackest of bête noires, Big Dumb Holding Companies.

A film of this modern day Gettysburg Address has resurfaced (that one didn’t take very long either) and here it is.

Will George have his way, with agencies escaping their owners and going back to making advertising rather than spreadsheets? You never know..there’s a growing number of clients who would rather like that.
