Day in the Life of David Bain



WHAT’S YOUR OFFICIAL JOB TITLE?

Planning Partner at BMB

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE TO YOUR MUM WHAT YOU DO?

I go into rooms and say things to people. If it goes well people write them down, if it goes badly they look at me weird

HOW WOULD YOU ACTUALLY DESCRIBE WHAT YOU DO?

I combine funny pictures off the internet with quotes from Schopenhauer and a graph.

WHAT WERE YOU DOING AT THE FOLLOWING TIMES TODAY/ YESTERDAY

9am (or whatever time your work day generally begins)? In the disabled loo at work going through my protocols of preparation.

11am In a creative review rubbing my the bridge of my nose (alot)

1pm In a quant debrief, asking about the R2. Wouldn’t know an R2 if it savaged me in a lift shaft. But I do know that asking about the R2 has a really high coefficient of determination as to whether or not people think I know what the fuck I am talking about

3pm Wilfing around on the internet. If Google doesn’t know then how the HELL am I supposed to…

5pm It’s EOP. Whatever it is, it usually has to be done by ‘end of play’. This is a pretty equivocal timeslot in my book so I get back to wilfing for a bit.

7pm (or whatever time your work day generally ends)? In the disabled loo, going through my protocols of disengagement.
