One time, we were doing a pitch at GGT.
Mike Greenlees was in full flow, presenting the agency strategy to the client.
Pretty soon, Mike Gold would be doing the media, then I’d present the creative work.
The trouble was, there was an awful lot of banging coming from the roof above.
We tried to ignore it, but it was getting louder and louder.
Everyone was getting distracted.
And the client was listening to the banging instead of listening to Mike.
The room we used for pitches was the entire top floor of the agency.
It had a great view over Soho.
