Inbox: Madly talented

We’re delving in to what it takes to be one of New Zealand’s own madmen – aka ad wizards – in next month’s issue of NZ Management. More to the point, we’ll be checking out what it takes to lead some of the best creative juice factories in the land.
In the meantime, here are the shout-out highlights from the 2102 Fairfax Media/AdMedia Agency of the Year Awards where DDB knocked the gongs off the shelf like there’s no tomorrow in front of sell-out crowd.
The Communications Agencies Association of NZ (CAANZ to its friends) officially partnered with the event for the first time and trio of nousy judges got to make the hard decisions: Brian Blake (managing director, DB Breweries); Roger MacDonnell (former Colenso BBDO chairman); and Ross Goldsack (former Y&R executive chairman).
