Last week a number of Marketing Week journalists were invited to the Oxo Tower restaurant by CIA Medianetwork to “get to know” the agency better. The “getting to know you” lunch turned out to be useful in more ways than one.
At one end of the table sat CIA managing director Mike Tunnicliffe, marketing director Mike Anderson and the Diary’s good self. During lunch, Tunnicliffe asked the Diary what the different reporters do on the magazine, which the Diary duly explained.
Tunnicliffe then pointed down the table and said: “And what about the guy at the end, what does he do?” The Diary looked at Anderson who turned to Tunnicliffe and said: “Er, he works for us Mike, he does the PR.”
