  • Disclosure
    Nobody pays me to write any of the copy on my blog, and should I ever have the good fortune that they do, I will declare it. My main employment is as the owner and principal of The Future Place consultancy. The Future Place provides two key services 1) training and services to industry and academic bodies and 2) consultancy services to companies. The details of the companies I work with are a private matter, but if I blog about any company who has paid The Future Place more than expenses recently (approx. two years) I will mention that they are a client. I hold equity in Virtual Surveys and provide consulting services to them from time to time. I am paid to run courses for a number of trade bodies and over the last few years clients have included ESOMAR, AMSRS, MRS, and MRIA.

The answer to your last question is: none of those things. Will some clients leave as a result of the Omnicom deal? "Perhaps". That's a quotation not from me but from an executive in a rival agency group senior enough to make the call. You're right, I'm sure, about brand management clients. They probably couldn't care less who owns Communispace, as long as the new owner is reputable. But agencies from other groups who use its services are suspicious. They're not entirely convinced the Chinese walls will remain creeper-free. Of course, those suspicions may be groundless...
