Winston Fletcher, chairman of the pithily named advertising agency Delaney Fletcher Slaymaker Delaney and Bozell, stars in Melrose Training Films' latest oeuvre.
"Managing Yourself" follows Winston through a gruelling day in ad-land, as he dispenses tips on how to wring the most from the working day. In line with his principle "Dominate data", he preaches ruthlessness in tackling the post. "A man's best friend is his wastebasket," he opines, and dumps the bulk of the day's mail in the bin.
But lo, what is the single envelope that emerges unscathed from this frenzy to find safe haven in his open briefcase? Our man in the front row caught sight of a sleek publication not unlike Management Today's February issue. Some things, it seems, do not need spelling out.
