Wil Anderson, Russel Howcroft (GPYR) and Todd Sampson (Leo Burnett) give a big Gruen welcome to two debutantes – corporate image specialist Tim Allerton (City Public Relations) who has worked with Kerry Stokes and Russel Crowe and public affairs strategist, Jane Singleton, who worked for asbestos victims during the James Hardie case.
This week, in Crisis Management, we’ll ask how a death threat could possibly be good PR.

The Pitch. Two competing ad agencies come up with a campaign, on behalf of the Tasmania government to convince us to move all our refugee processing and detention to the Apple Isle.
We welcome ABT and Sputnik to centre stage.
