CDing question: Acct shares script with client. Client says “needs more urgency…add the word ‘now’ to the first line.” But the first line isn’t urgent. It’s just the normal brand proposition, like Volvo talking about safety. There’s nothing new. Nothing “now”, so I suggest maybe the music will convey urgency. Maybe the VO. Acct says “The client liked ‘now’ so let’s just do that.”
How do you push back on Acct blindly following client orders, including the precise words in a script?

Corp associates, just curious if you ever raise concerns about inhumane hours with your firms? I see that we’re having useful discussions about things like wfh and comp but less about hours? Aren’t those the thing that truly stands in the way of our happiness? Why aren’t we talking more about this while the market is so hot, are you worried about competition? Lack of sympathy from partners? That the comp system would fall apart? Ashamed to sound like a slacker? I’d love to hear your perspectives
