In what seems to be a weekly occurrence, Sir Martin “Mr. Happy Fun Guy” Sorrell offered agency folks a Debbie Downer moment in the form of a LinkedIn”fluencer” blog post: “The 10 Trends Shaping the Global Ad Business.”
In the post, Sorrell makes several claims that will cause creatives to yank out their hair (wherever it may still grow). Among them is this vitriolic sentiment:
New York is still very much the centre of the world, but power (economic, political and social) is becoming more widely distributed, marching South, East and South East: to Latin America, India, China, Russia, Africa and the Middle East, and Central and Eastern Europe.
So America’s age is starting to show.
