Half-Term Reports 2013: Saatchi & Saatchi London

Campaign asked the ad and media industry to rate and summarise their performance so far in 2013, ahead of our School Reports for 2014. Here's how Saatchi & Saatchi London view the first six months of their year.

Score (self-awarded): 7

Number of staff: 380

New business / billings: £80m

Summary of the year so far: "The first 6 months of 2013. We’ve welcomed 80 lovely new people into our building from Outside Line, mixed our agencies up… and won 6 new pieces of digital business, including Premier Foods and Asda. We asked the gaming community to help us design a meat hat for Mattessons. 3.5m of them got involved and sales went up 65%. We convinced Rory McIlroy to play golf against a wisecracking robot. Everyone laughed (even Tiger Woods). But it wasn’t all about digital. Our latest campaign for Visa turned back time; our campaigns for Kerry Foods made our clients so happy that they asked us to work on the Richmond account, and we added more new business from PZ Cussons. We’ve got our fingers crossed for the Asda repitch. And did we mention HSBC? "

Awards won so far in 2013: "British Arrows 2013 - Bronze best 60-90 second cinema commercial - EE Film Club Clio Awards 2013 - Bronze film, animation - Toyota GT86 Cannes 2013 - Bronze film lions, savory foods - Mattessons Hank Cannes 2013 - Bronze media lions, fmcg - Mattessons Meat Helmet"
