A discussion with Sir John Hegarty

Sir John Hegarty must be sick of me. I met up with him last week to interview him for the podcast (and a forthcoming book I’ll give you more details about soon!) And then last night we did an event together at the BBH office. As you can tell from the little halo above my head in the photo, I was on my best behaviour.

The evening was the first of a number of discussions organised by the School of Communication Arts focussed on the future of the advertising industry. Which, as you may know, is something I’m pretty interested in.

We were also lucky enough to be joined by the always-entertaining Robin Wight, founder of The Ideas Foundation and president of The Engine Group. And the room was filled with lots of other great advertising people, a representative from the Sector Skills Council and a number of star students from the school.

I wanted a record of the night, so I popped my digital recorder on the table for the duration of the event. So if you’ve got an hour and a half to spare, you can have a listen to what was discussed right here:

UPDATE: You can also see a film of it on the School of Communication Arts site right here
