The&Partnership’s Johnny Hornby on Brexit, ad exports, migrants and that job at WPP

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!
