Adland in the time of coronavirus: Wendy Clark questions, MAA blasts from the past and adland media

“Out of the frying pan into the fire,” was my off-the-cuff reaction when a colleague told me about Wendy Clark’s departure from Omnicom’s DDB to be CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN), essentially Dentsu outside home territory Japan.

Laurence Green: my MAA blast from the past – Sony Bravia

It was a shoot I didn’t go on. A sale I wasn’t part of. A strategy I didn’t write. But it’s still probably the single piece of work I’m proudest to have been involved with.

Don’t be fooled by the silence of the streets: Women’s Aid signposts domestic abuse crisis in the lockdown

Mad Man. Booze. Fags.. In his inimitable wisdom, Stephen has asked me to contribute to the on-going series “MAA blasts from the past.” As I have more of a past than just about anyone reading this, it should be a piece of piss.

Hearts go out to New York, UK needs to prepare for something better even in tragedy
