Media Moments 2017: Duncan Parfitt, Blue 449

Agency execs name their top media moments from 2017

To help us analyse the year we have called on executives from Australia’s finest media agencies. Special thanks to all those who took part and, to those who didn’t, we will be after you next year! Most popular references included listening to Spotify or Triple J’s Ben and Liam, while a lot of respondents enjoyed the OMD Big Day Outs!

Duncan Parfitt, Managing Director, Blue 449

Best event you attended in 2017?

For me the Spark events that Blue 449 has organised raising money for Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick have been the highlights. How our media partners, clients and the whole company got behind a great cause has been inspirational with incredible amounts of money raised.

Favourite breakfast radio show?

Triple j would be my favourite normal station. Extending this a little, the podcast version of Rhod Gilbert’s Saturday morning breakfast show on BBC Radio Wales.

TV show on any platform you can’t get enough of?

My secret favourite would be Gogglebox, shhhhh.

Memorable media moment from 2017?

The same sex marriage bill was, and continues to be, easily top.

New Year’s Resolution?

I’m very lucky that on January 4 my wife and I will be welcoming twins into the world. I have two resolutions – to be a great husband and a great dad.
