Photon – forget about the redundancies, the party continues

Dr Mumbo is delighted to see that Photon Group isn’t letting a small thing like a stock market suspension and capital raising get in the way of the management’s appreciation of a good party.  

Regular readers may recall that even after it hit choppy waters, Photon threw an epic party at Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour. Since then, things have got even worse, with the company’s shares suspended since June 9.

So it’s nice to read in Lara Sinclair’s Cannes diary in The Australian that the company will nonetheless be throwing a cocktail party at the Cannes Lions ad festival this Friday.

Obviously the timing could be a tad awkward PR-wise if the reorganisation gets announced this week, what with the Photon redundancies that have already taken place this month.

But, hey, networking in the South of France is clearly essential at this stage.
