-Meet the Consultants: Accenture and Fjord will be camping out in Karmarama’s London offices like one big, happy family.

-The ad industry welcomes Theresa May’s promise to “maintain close relations with Europe” following Brexit so it can keep scoring all that top talent.

-In far less significant British news, adam&eveDDB’s Dom Boyd is headed to Publicis London as chief strategy officer.

-AB InBev is going 100% renewable for 2025. But the beer will still taste the same.
