Today sees the UK Advertising Association’s LEAD ‘Summit” and the big topic on the agenda is Brexit.
Here’s The&Partnership’s Johnny discussing the issue with Sky’s Ian King (don’t think Johnny’s on the AA’s panel) but he has some interesting things to say about the UK’s ad exports to Europe (£4bn worth it seems) and, by implication, a warning to Tesesa May not to muck that up; UK agencies’ need to hire overseas talent (one in five people currently) and, even, succeeding Sir Martin Sorrell (eventually) at WPP.
A masterclass, including sidestepping the Sorrell issue although not contradicting such speculation (BTW SMS is a father again it seems). Plus a plug for new European client Toyota (moving from a French network Publicis to him – T&P is 49 per cent owned by WPP).
MAA creative scale: 9.
Sorry, it’s not an ad!
