Mumbrellacast: Konrad Spilva, first look at the bargaining code, and radio rounds out the year

Ex-Isobar CEO Konrad Spilva joined the Mumbrellacast this week to talk all things, Dentsu, independents and his new business Shadowboxer. Taking a look back at the his departure from the Dentsu International-owned agency, Spilva reveals how he knew it was the right time to go and why a global job wasn’t for him. And, in the new world of independent agency forces Spilva chats about what creative consultancy, Shadowboxer, has to offer the market.

The week also saw the last radio ratings survey of the year. Who went out on top? And who has a lot to look forward to next year? The chaos of 2020 has particularly disrupted the radio industry, following the months-long pause in ratings in the middle of the year. The Mumbrellacast team takes you through what radio bosses had to say about 2020 drawing to a close and their plans for next year.

Plus, the News Media and Digital Platforms Mandatory Bargaining Code bill has finally been introduced into parliament. The team runs through the key points in Treasurer Josh Frydenberg’s speech and the industry’s reaction.
