Forensic, focused, cantankerous: nine reflections on Sorrell and his style
1. 'Intensely' focused on people

4. 'Good riddance'
Once chaired a panel with Sir Martin. He was cantankerous, a bit off topic and, well, will leave it at that.— David Gallagher (@TBoneGallagher) April 15, 2018
But it's undeniable his company has been a transformative force in our industry and his agencies produce remarkable talent with bright futures. https://t.co/TgHk2nMoJV

7. 'Iron hand'
