Once upon a time over six years ago, I started my PR agency career with an organisation called The Weber Group. This was formed by a straight talking marketer called Larry Weber, by the time I joined the business had been wildly successful in the US and had been bought by the Interpublic Group (IPG).
Well all empires come to an end and IPG’s retrenchment involved restating of financial results and merging businesses into each other and watching the assets of the business walk out the door to competitors. Larry left and then the other week came back from the wilderness with W2 Group. Watch this space.
Another return, is Google’s taking back the lead from A9.com as to who is the most useful search engine. Google Print allows users to search publications and get recommendations on where to buy the original here.
