Does Anyone Know …

… the divorce rate for executives in advertising, compared to other industries?

Also, is there any skew towards ex-pats versus people working in their home country?

If anyone who can help, I’d be very grateful – and no, this is nothing to do with me or Andy or anyone else I know directly, ha!

why rob? why the fuck do you continually want to open pandoras box?

Comment by andy@cynic

Opening Pandora’s Box?

That sounds like an act of infidelity in itself!

Comment by Rob

very witty you bastard

Comment by andy@cynic

I’m sure Halibut Fisher would have something on this. What do you need it for…what’s your hypothesis?

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

I don’t have the specific data you want, but I do have some other stuff about the favored social activities of individuals in industries like Government, Advertising, Finance. Will that help?

Comment by Pete

Yes Fred – quite possibly a Halibut Fisher research study – however because I’m lazy and you sit 2 feet away from me, I’ll simply TALK to you about my hypothesis as opposed to risking RSI by typing it all out. Pretty sure you can guess though.

And Pete – yeah, I’d love to see that stuff, can you email it?

Comment by Rob

Will dig it out and email it. It’s got flaws but its still quite an interesting read.
Don’t worry though, I know you will be the exception to the rule in the high powered advertising executive chapter. 🙂

starting an international online dating service for ad execs?

Comment by lauren

Why is everyone suspicious when I ask a question like this????

Comment by Rob

Lauren, did you mean an online dating service for married ad execs?

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

Don’t you start Fred …

Comment by Rob

rob – you have to admit that compared to the rest of your blog posts, it’s pretty out of left field… even compared to sausages and excess birkenstocks..

i don’t think i meant that fred, but perhaps you know something i don’t, so… (shrug)

Comment by lauren

You know what Lauren – Fred is FAR closer to the mark than you’d think.

No, not because I want to set up an ‘Executive Relief Company’ but because I want to see how prevelant ‘sexual philandering’ is in this industry compared to others. There is a reason for this too … but I can’t let on yet. Sorry.

Comment by Rob

Hope this isn’t cold feet Mr Campbell.

Comment by NP

😉

Comment by Marcus Brown

Let me assure everyone this isn’t cold feet as far as Rob’s concerned.

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

Thank you for jumping to my defence – and NP, I was fawning all over you a few posts ago, so I hope this new ‘antagonise Rob’ attitude won’t force me to change my view, ha!

Comment by Rob

I don’t think I want to know…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

I was just genuinely concerned for the future Mrs. Rob that’s all.
Have you not noticed how much time I spend here? That’s all I need to say about what I think of you and what you say.
We’d better bloody meet this year. By the way, are you coming to Russell’s interesting conference? I may be speaking (or at least supplying a video)

Comment by NP

Ace. I think I have a 3 minute slot as well.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

About cointreau?

Comment by NP

It’s a planning orgy. Where’s my handycam?

Comment by Billy Whizz

Yes.

(not really)

About gaming I think!
