That’s quite the title isn’t it?!
Now I know what you’re thinking, “No Rob, you’re not!”
And you’re probably right.
In fact, I hope you are because otherwise we’re all fucking doomed.
However the reason I wrote that massively inflated ego blog post title is because last week, Nick Brien – the CEO of McCann – was fired and I couldn’t but help remember a post I wrote a while back about what I think one of their fundamental problems is.
Sure, losing an alleged 25% of revenue is a career limiting move for anyone, but again – was it him or was it the structure and attitude of the organisation that didn’t want to change when all signs were/are screaming ‘DANGER AHEAD’.
Mind you, if the CEO can’t do it then they have to go, regardless of revenue loss.
Which makes me feel slightly less guilty that I was such a prick to that guy in the States who ‘wanted a chat’.
As well as slightly vindicated. Ahem.
