Industry icon David Abbott dies

The IPA is saddened to hear about the passing of one of the industry’s most prominent figures, David Abbott, on 17th May 2014.


Says Paul Bainsfair, Director General, IPA: “David Abbott wasn’t just the best copywriter of his generation. He was in a class of his own. A truly exceptional talent. He last came in to the IPA to speak to a full house about his book “The upright piano player”. Even though he was by then in his seventies, there were more young people in the rapt audience that day than usual. He was one of the greats.”

Watch the IPA film with David Abbott in coversation with Lord Bell.
