Campaign Diary: Adland takes best tables at Brit Awards

Adland shows its face at last week's Brit Awards.

The ad industry was out in force at The Brits at The O2 last week where Diary spotted Omnicom Media Group UK boss Philippa Brown (who TV viewers might have also seen making a lunge towards Stormzy), Global chief executive Stephen Miron, McCann Worldgroup UK chief executive Mark Lund, ITV Commercial double act Kelly Williams and Simon Daglish, Havas Europe chief Chris Hirst, MRM Meteorite chairwoman Nicky Bullard, and Warner Music's new, top creative duo John Allison and Chris Bovill, who recently joined from 4Creative to run Firepit. But who had the best seat in the house at a table right at the very front of the stage? Step forward Adam&Eve/DDB creative chief Richard Brim, who evidently has impeccable connections at the top of the music biz. Well, he does make a lot of TV ads with great soundtracks.
