About the Author

Mark Leigh

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mark Leigh’s first job in an ad agency was a studio junior
at 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 front
of the Lyons Coffee Client-yet still retained his job, if not
his dignity. Mark is now a director of AMD, the country’s
largest 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.
