How do you transform a top three ad agency into number one? Well, Steve Harris, Chairman & CEO of The Brand Agency, explains his approach. As former President of the Fremantle Dockers, he was able to bring an elite-sport mindset into a creative business, and give the culture a good shake up.

This week we’re talking with the author of a new biography of this enigmatic philosopher.
What is civilisation? A place, an ideal, a culture? Is civilisation under threat - and if so, who are the barbarians? Also, the art of the salon, a refined 18th century tradition that bridged the gap between high intellectual culture and practical everyday life. Is the salon due for a revival?
This is a first attempt at exploring the potential of a regular podcast with friend and Dr. Carlos Davodich and I called "a Conversation with Humans"

William Gibson has trained his eye on the future for decades, ever since coining the term “cyberspace” and then popularizing it in his classic speculative novel Neuromancer in the early 1980s. Cory Doctorow raved that The Peripheral is “spectacular, a piece of trenchant, far-future speculation that features all the eyeball kicks of Neuromancer.” Now Gibson is back with Agency—a science fiction thriller heavily influenced by our most current events.
