I’ve been really lucky.
I started my career, straight from university, into Account Planning, a long time ago. A couple of weeks back was my 35th anniversary in the business.
My first job was at “BMP” now know as Adam & Eve DDB (London). at the time it was probably the most creative and awarded agency in the world, largely due to the creative leadership and talent of John Webster.
A few days ago a film was made by Patrick Collister and the School of Communication Arts in London, on John Webster and his work and philosophy, with lots of commentary by other industry leaders (such as John Hegarty, Dave Trott and Rory Sutherland).
A trailer is below.
And you can see the full documentary film too
35 years on, I’m still lucky! Now I’m at the other agency that co-founded planning back in 1968, JWT. Though in Bangkok. A bit warmer than London, and very human.
