ABOUT THE AUTHORMark Leigh’s first job in an ad agency was a studio juniorat DDB. He soon realised that there was more money (and marginally less tea-making) as an account executive there. Despite working with clients such as Polaroid, Volkswagen, Motorola, Volvic and Berkeley Homes, he is proud to say that he is ‘Ulcer-free’. His claim to fame is that he was once sick right in frontof the Lyons Coffee Client-yet still retained his job, if not his dignity. Mark is now a director of AMD, the country’slargest property marketing consultancy, based in Chelsea. If his MD is reading this book Mark would like to point out to her that it was written entirely in his own time.
