An Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire…
We’ve gone all OBE about it for episode 23 of The All Good Copy Podcast.
When I started the podcast, the last thing I thought I’d be doing is speaking to an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
But hey, why not, eh?
And the fact is: it truly was a great honour to get to chat with the advertising legend that is Trevor Robinson OBE.
Sure, picking Trevor’s mind on creativity was insightful. But we also got talking about Jack Kerouac, Talking Heads and the refreshing honesty of Kanye West, which is far more fun, right?
Anyhow, for those who don’t know:
Trevor is the founder and creative director of Quiet Storm, the agency behind some huge ads (including the Haribo one with the kid’s voices that you’re bound to have impersonated at some point).
I think it all makes for a great episode.
Plus, you’ve got the debut of ‘The Dave Trott Song’ and ‘I AM SIMON SINEK’.
