The biggest challenge facing our industry is having the space, time and confidence to develop big brand ideas, and this is even more important for ever for FMCG brands. I think budgets will increase in 2014 as ideas build and build.

The most surprising thing to happen in 2014 will be for everyone to suddenly stop talking about "The power of ..." (insert "big data", "content", "smartphones").
