Paul was fired – by himself and others (starting like me, with his Headmaster) at least four times – with two/three near misses. He has just written a great book for Ad folks and leaders everywhere.
Check it out on his site https://paulcowan.com.
Paul was at Saatchi & Saatchi before my time – 1978-1990. He rose to become a Group Account Director, then left to start his own agency with a senior S&S Creative and Planner – Cowan Kemsley Taylor.
Paul’s book is easy, uncomplicated, simple and authentic. He doesn’t demand too much effort from the reader to fully understand what he wants to get across.
If you have the opportunity to read it, take it. As Eric Burden once said “It will be worth it”.
It’s available for £12 in the Apple Bookstore and in softcover from other usual outlets.
(Thank you to the Goode Simon for the heads-up.)
