Six big names are set to debate the curly question ‘are suits nothing more than bag carriers?’ at the Sydney launch debate for the Account Management Group (AGM) next week.

Foxtel’s marketing director Chantal Walker (pictured), TBWA’s general manager Nitsa Lotus, ZenithOptimedia’s Ian Perrin, Ogilvy’s chief creative officer Steve Back are among the six.

Also on the AGM panel, which is powered by the Communications Council, are Droga5 CEO Sudeep Gohil and R/GA’s technology director Bryan Jones.

The event, to be mediated by Ten’s Russel Howcroft, was to be held at DDB on June 3 but the venue was moved to the Bavarian Beer Cafe on York St to house a further 150 attendees.

Naren Sanghrajka, AGM NSW chairman, said: “We’re thrilled to see such a positive response. This launch initiative and the subject matter of this particular debate – whether to label suits ad men or bag men – have both clearly resonated with those working in our industry. We’re tackling the “elephant in the room” head on, and I look forward to hearing what this impressive and diverse mix of leaders has to say.”

“It is our goal to provide a voice for Account Managers in NSW, to help define the profession’s “new” identity and ensure suits a place on the map”.
