As I walked through London on my way to a discussion on diversity held by the IPA for the Festival of British Advertising, the diversification of modern society was clear to see.

The Decade

Client Services Director

Recently I reached my ten-year work anniversary at LAW Creative. Ten years? Where did they go? Well, I guess they went all over – from raising a young family to successful career development, from home buying and renovation to pitch and industry award wins. From trips overseas (both business and social), large film productions and client pitches to award-winning integrated campaigns, new brand development and the ever-changing landscape of digital marketing.

NO ROI. NO AWARD

Executive Creative Director

And since I was going there to have my own body scanned and printed, and felt like rather poor subject matter, I needed all the quality I could get.

FROZEN

Creative Director

So I found myself stranded in the Arctic Circle. The taxi transporting my film crew and I had had an unfortunate mishap involving a deep pile of snow and a patch of the blackest ice. I went to take a sip from my water bottle but it had frozen solid. I took out my phone to find the nearest town, blinking through crystals of ice that had formed on my eyelashes, only to discover that my Lithium battery had died in the extreme cold.

JAY RAYNER LAYS DOWN THE LAW

Executive Creative Director

Pablo Alonso, CEO of Intelligence firm HotStats, has said: “The growth in food and beverage revenue over the past 15 years has been well behind the growth in rooms revenue. It appears the food and beverage department has been somewhat neglected in recent years, so refocusing resources on this key department presents a strong opportunity to increase its contribution to overall revenue and profitability.”
