HAVING A WALES OF A TIME
Our Public Affairs and Comms teams went to Cardiff on Wednesday to meet Welsh Assembly Conservative members including Health Spokesperson Angela Burns, Business Spokesperson Russell George and Janet Finch-Saunders.They discussed the Welsh Government’s newly launched health plan: ‘Healthy Weight: Healthy Wales delivery plan 2020 – 2022’. This includes proposals to ban all OOH ads which feature HFSS food by 2030 and we will be engaging further on the proposals going forward.

It was great to attend NABS’ annual President’s Breakfast on Tuesday morning and to hear more about the fabulous work this organisation does on behalf of the UK advertising industry – a huge congratulations to Diana Tickell, Chief Executive of NABS and her team for another brilliant year.

The interactive group sessions will be led by expert trainers who work in the areas of sexual harassment and gender-based violence and will visit participating offices and offer tools and information to help identify and report inappropriate behaviour in the workplace.
