Top bloke with great kicks. Great hire.
You got a good one Dentsu.
But he owes me lollies and it’s his round.
The best laugh in the biz. Lovely bloke and smart.
Kirsty is hiring up a storm. Will be interesting to see who’s next. Be a another rising star I reckon. Gone to a good place these folks. In a flash they look very impressive. Twelve new hires at last count. Months in it’s looking great.
