The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

Founders Day Weekend …

54 years ago, five twenty somethings – Hylton Mackley, Vern King, Michael Wall, Mike Hutcheson and Roger MacDonnell – got together to start an agency.

Only problem is they didn’t have any clients or any cash.

Step in Hylton’s wife, Eileen, who handed over her student loan to help them get started.

The rest, as they say, is history … one we are continually encouraged to push, stretch, provoke and mess with.

Bu we can’t forget we wouldn’t be here if they weren’t there which is why today is Founders Day, followed by the weekend, followed by a National day off [not for Colenso, though it should be] so see you Tuesday. If anyone is still bothered to visit and read my rubbish.
