Hello peeps – by the time you read this, I will be getting ready to depart on my mini-holiday which basically comprises of the following elements …
9% Wedding preparation
17% Seeing friends
18% Eating [and not the stuff I've recently been living off ]
28% House buying
16% New company development talks
10% Flying / Driving
2% Chilling out with Jill
Because I will have my nuts cut off if I so much as check a blog, let alone write a post … absolutely nothing will happen until I return on the 7th May – and even then there might be nothing as I’ll of just flown in and be jetlagged as hell.
Anyway, hope you all have top weeks and I will see you a happier [read: more cynical and angry] and unhealthier [read: full of tasty badness] person in about a weeks time.
Now if you have come here for the first time [Possibly because of Russell directing you to the May 'Advertising School On The Web' project] … hello!
I am really honoured and excited to be part of all this and will detail exactly what your project will be around May 10th.
I have to say what I will be asking you to do will be quite different to what you’ve done before – not because I felt there was anything wrong with the previous stuff [far from it] – but because I’d like to stretch out the issues you consider when developing your thinking and solutions.
I also intend to get some creatives involved in the ‘evaluation’ process - because planning is a team discipline and I think it is important we always remember and encourage that.
Anyway I hope you find it interesting, challenging and [for want of a much, much, much better word] educational … and with abit of luck, you won’t feel Russell has basically put you in the hands of the Devil, ha!
Whilst I am sure you all have tons and tons and tons of blogs you look at, can I encourage you to go and check out some of the wonderful rants/observations/mutterings of people who really run this blog … Fred / Hari / Lauren / Age / Mr M / NP / Charles / Will.
As much as it pains me to admit, they are funnier, nicer, more intelligent and more interesting than I ever could be though I apologise for their foul language. [Especially the commenters with no blog, ie: Marcus, Andy and Billy]
Finally, to ensure you don’t mistake my attitude for flippancy, I have written a rather long post covering one of the issues I believe stops many people from achieving the success they deserve – Presentaphobia!
Hope you find it more useful than the rest of the rubbish on this blog!
Can’t wait to meet you all very soon … have fun!
