In a happy coincidence, an interview I’d scheduled with Jim Carroll occurred hours before he was due to attend the Account Planning Group’s Creative Strategy Awards.
The APG really is the leading industry group for the awkward among our industry and, after a hefty career in London, Jim just chaired two days and 27 presentations from England’s strategy brains for the APG. So we talked about how he sees the state of creativity in advertising, why planning seems a bit lost, what makes planning work difficult yet powerful, and his analysis of this year’s account planning papers and presentations. This interview isn’t edited so you know you’ll get a few rambling questions.
