My CCO has worked late nights, weekends and through his days off. He’s ensured we’ve had days off in-lieu when we’ve worked pitches and late nights. He’s constantly had check-ins with all the teams and he’s rebooted a majority of the accounts creatively to give us more opportunities. He’s fought with account managers on behalf of the creative department for more reasonable timelines. He’s also a really nice guy the whole time and genuinely one of the most talented creatives I’ve ever seen. Proper leadership. So I’m okay with him getting his 20% back.

Is he quite new to the job?

No problems with it, if it means hiring/promo freezes are being lifted next.

This. If agencies are not overworked due to being understaffed, sure, why not.

Given that we’re about to go through another round of layoffs, not sure I agree.

Wow. We aren’t even close to being out of the woods yet with this virus. Good luck trying to reverse this when we go back on lockdown in the fall.

You’re spot on with the first part, but I just don’t see the U.S. economy shutting down a second time.

WPP did apply to the Bank of England for a £700Million pound loan via the British Covid Corporate Financing Facility, so maybe they did get some of that cash. They also had far less debt than the other holding companies going into COVID-19.

Apparently they’ve opted to not use any of it. At least that was one of the reasons given when my agency laid off people instead of furlough

I had an observation with the union head at our district. Honestly, he was not a very good teacher at all. I am afraid to score him accuratelty though.

After you’ve connected with a consultant on LinkedIn what’s the best practice for asking someone to give you a practice case? To balance respect someone’s time vs coming off as transactional. Should you first ask for coffee chat, then later a case or can you ask for a case in your first “chat”? I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?

Pondering. How many creatives struggle with the imposter syndrome. And even though you get into this business because you have talent, how do you stay true to that and not listen to the haters/ cancel culture that makes you feel like an imposter. I feel like I’m not alone, but I’d love some advice on how you guys paddle your own creative canoe.
