Mr Carstens you have now served your purpose and made Renee rich beyond her wildest dreams. You should be due shortly for a culling, perhaps at the expense of another gym instructor.Don't you realise it is all just a game for her. Steve,Dermot,Graham et al all lie on the scrapheap with broken hearts thinking they were the only one.They served their purpose and were told to move on.

Interesting to note where TJDR Cape Town sit in all of this. Kevan and Ross (two main honchos) are really ethical guys? Do they distance themselves or is the lure of the lucre too much?

"Reneé’s famous for being a great relationship person. She builds very strong relationships with clients.” - Sounds like it, sounds like she knows how to build very good relationships with clients like Carstens, Ross, etc.

The advertising industry is about as ethical and professional as the porn industry.

Hello, FNB? I'll tell you for free why "How Can We Help You?" "hasn’t really come across". It's not that "some fresh creative input was required". It's that you're frickin' useless and - actually - you can't "help me". You can't even send a "relationship manager" to meet me.

Your "whole brand proposition How Can We Help You? cannot "come alive,” as it is bullshit, frankly. Bloody banks!
