I really must stop having my morning cup of coffee – Nespresso machine, highly recommended – in front of the tele.
This morning I came across a most appalling interview on Channel 7 by that left-wing, know-nothing tosser, Andrew O’Keefe, and a vacuous blonde called Samantha Armytage (yes, I had to look it up) of the Global CEO (note pompous title) of marketing compay, Havas. His name is David Jones which is a bit confusing for us Aussies.
David Jones, the global CEO of Havas and Sir Bob Geldof will tonight address a 300-strong crowd on a number of topical subjects including the ‘Age of Damage’ at Guillaume at Bennelong, Sydney Opera House.Jones, also an author who wrote best selling book ‘Who Cares Wins’, will deliver a talk on and d
how social media and digitally empowered consumers are forcing businesses, politicians and leaders to be more socially responsible. He will discuss how businesses are in danger of being left behind unless leaders and politicians adapt to this new world of radical transparency, where the price of doing well is doing good.
One had to laugh at Jones’ examples – Alan Jones and the Qantas dispute and the power of social media to … well, I’m not sure. In both cases, their positions in the market are stronger than ever. The advertising boycott of Jones lasted a nanosecond.
Interestingly, that epitome of all things progressive and desirable, Kyle Sandilands, didn’t rate a mention for bad behaviour inducing outrage on the Twittersphere. But now he is Jool’s BFF, I guess we are supposed to love Sandilands. What’s really wrong with calling someone a fat slag when that fat slag had said rude things about him?
On this ‘who cares’ theme, one of my daughter’s friends, who is an architect, wrote a very interesting thesis about greenwashing. Evidently, in the case of many of these 5 star rated green buildings, it’s just a con – they are no different from other buildings – but the whole green image is done to market the building. I guess David Jones – speaker type – would know all about this.
Jones – obviously hasn’t read Smith.
