For many years Dave Trott’s blog has been a source of inspiration and advice to all. His simple approach to advertising and application of common sense to communication is one of the most solid and reassuring voices in the industry.

“Learn about other people’s job incase they don’t turn up one day.”

We implore you read his weekly blog, if only to read some of the stories intertwined to demonstrate this point. But here are some brilliant videos of the man himself that will inspire and improve your approach to creativity and strategy.
