  2. 2. 9882_D_S_Verge 10/9/07 08:59 Page 2 If you haven’t already done so, I recommend you pop out and buy a GPS unit for your car. There are quite a few benefits to this. (According to my own cost-benefit analysis, the entire purchase price is easily justified by the avoidance of domestic arguments and the corresponding reduction in the risk of divorce.) They also generally get you to your destination faster and more easily. So far, so obvious. But there is one more thing they do. They make it a lot safer to try new routes. Previously, if you were stuck in traffic, you sat there, quietly fuming. If you tried taking an alternative route, you’d find it was a cul-de-sac, or just end up hopelessly lost, uselessly circling back-streets while feral kids on bikes sized up the value of your tyres. Suddenly, with a GPS, you can experiment with new directions and immediately find out whether turning right was a good idea or a disaster. In the first few weeks I discovered five new ways of getting to work. Suddenly it paid to be curious. What at Ogilvy we like to call safe adventure. We believe it’s a spirit we all need to adopt more and more in the digital age. Quite simply, the better the information you have on your dashboard, the more advantageous it is to try a new approach. The joy of digital media is that they provide you with information in real time. You can build on your successes (and bury failures) while they happen. Which means the last £1 you spend of your budget can be fifteen times more effective than the first. It’s why the second part of Verge is labelled Experiment. That actually the best way to escape gridlock is simply to try something – provided you can rapidly backtrack when it doesn’t pay. You’ll learn more about this today. But bear this thought in mind as the day unfolds. Rory Sutherland – Vice-Chairman, Ogilvy Group UK

  6. 6. 9882_D_S_Verge 10/9/07 08:59 Page 6 Rory Sutherland Vice Chairman, Ogilvy UK. Rory Sutherland was born in Usk, Monmouthshire, in 1965 and educated at the local Haberdashers’ school and at Christ’s College, Cambridge. He joined OgilvyOne as a graduate trainee in September of that year. After six months cross training, and thirteen months spent as the world’s worst account man (in a last remedial effort he was booked on a time management course, but got the date wrong) he was moved to the Planning Department. Soon afterwards he confessed an interest in copywriting to his line manager, who agreed this was a jolly sensible move. So sensible, in fact, that he fired him. The experience had not been altogether wasted. For one thing, while in Planning, Rory worked within a few feet of Miles Young (now head of Ogilvy Asia); Paul O’Donnell (now Chairman of OgilvyOne Europe) and Derek Robson (now at Wieden & Kennedy). For another, it was his spell in Planning that introduced him to online information systems accessible over a squeaky thing called a modem (then operating at a “blistering” 14.4Kbps). If only they could consumerise this technology, he thought, direct marketing could really take off. Of course, had his firing taken place in 1999, fate would have seen him joining a start-up and writing this from his oceanfront house in Santa Barbara. But, sod it, this was 1992. So, two weeks after leaving Planning, Rory joined the creative department as a junior copywriter. At this point things went a bit better. Working first for Steve Harrison and partnered with Mike Simm (now a CofE vicar in Norfolk) and then Cordell, Rory was promoted to Head of Copy in 1995 and Creative Director in 1997. He won some awards. In 2005 he was made vice-Chairman of the Ogilvy Group in the UK in recognition of his improved timekeeping. He remains an advocate of advertising which does different things, rather than just saying things differently.
  7. 7. 9882_D_S_Verge 10/9/07 08:59 Page 7 Listen Jon Steel Planning Director, WPP Jon Steel is an advertising strategist and writer, whose job is to provide strategic and creative direction to WPP Group clients and agencies alike. Prior to joining WPP, he trained as an account planner at London agency Boase Massimi Pollitt, before spending ten years as Vice-Chairman and Director of Account Planning at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco. His client experience includes brands like Nike, Coca-Cola, Hewlett-Packard, Unilever, Sony, Major League Baseball, Porsche and Budweiser. Jon is the author of Truth, Lies & Advertising (1998) and Perfect Pitch (2006), both published by John Wiley & Sons, New York. In addition to his current strategic role, he is responsible for WPP’s Marketing Fellowship programme, an elite recruitment and training scheme designed to attract top graduate talent from around the world to careers in marketing communications.
  8. 8. 9882_D_S_Verge 10/9/07 08:59 Page 8 Listen Bob Garfield Columnist Bob Garfield is a columnist, critic, essayist, pundit, international lecturer and obscure broadcast personality. He isn’t exactly a media whore, but he’s extremely promiscuous. Garfield’s “Ad Review” is a prominent feature of Advertising Age, where each week he singles out an ad for praise or ridicule and thus has become among the more pitifully grovelled-before figures in trade-magazine history. In another life, Garfield is co-host of National Public Radio’s weekly Peabody Award-winning magazine programme “On the Media.” This followed a dozen years as a commentator/correspondent for NPR‘s “All Things Considered.” Dubbed by The New York Times “the Charles Kuralt of Bizarro World,” he specialized in quirky Americana — an act he took to television, as well, producing pieces for public TV, syndication and CBS News. He also served as a political-advertising analyst for CBS, before being bounced in 1992 following an unfortunate Green Room incident. It was his most traumatic TV experience since “Oprah” in 1991, when he was humiliated by Mr. Whipple before a live studio audience. For many years, Garfield was the advertising analyst for ABC News. He’s been a regular on Financial News Network, CNBC’s “Power Lunch” and “Adam Smith’s Money Game” on PBS. He also has been quoted by every major American newspaper, news magazine and broadcast news programme, owing to his fearless willingness to speak authoritatively on subjects he doesn’t necessarily understand. That technique is the secret to his third book, Listen, now being written on his blog in full public view.

Mark also worked with American Express previously in the late nineties in a number of international marketing roles including product development, traditional and interactive marketing and partnerships.
