If you don’t what this post is about, go here … if you do, here’s today’s view:

Planners create fate, not ads.

Remember, add your own – but stick to the underlying message of each ‘value’ – or you’re off brief and slapped on the wrist!

Thank you to everyone [or anyone] who took part in this.

Of course the 5 statements I’ve written over this week don’t scratch the surface of the things planners should know/do … but this is a starting point and as things progress, I may/will call upon you to add some nuggets on matters such as commercial appreciation, collaberation, breadth and depth of opinion and remembering that sometimes what people say is the next big thing is an old thing with a fancy-pants new name.

In the meantime, I come back from China tomorrow so will have a look at what you’ve come up with and then blatantly rip it off and pass it off as my own.

In all seriousness, thanks so much for this … I’ll see where we’re at and what Baz says and try and give you all an update as/when it happens.

good planners take on responsibility for their influence on businesses and societies.

Comment by peggy

no amount of planning can thwart fate, and therein lies absolute freedom.

Planners sometimes forget that it’s only advertising.

Thanks to everyone for their corporate-toady, Apple-job-application comments … ha!

Seriously appreciate it, will have a good look and let you know where we take it. And Doddsy, your last comment is definitely going in – you might think it was sarcastic, but it’s bang on as I was telling some guys last week, even if they did look at me like I was a satan personified.

Comment by Rob

I am never sarcastic.
