Marsden warns Scottish agencies that more tough times are ahead

Speaking at an event in Edinburgh last week, Andrew Marsden, president of the Marketing Society issued a warning that tough times were still ahead.

Marsden, former Britvic marketing director, speaking at the Marketing Society’s annual dinner, claimed that 2008 would continue to be “a very tough year for agencies.”
