DAVID DON AND GOLIATH SHELL: EPISODE 3,651

Debrief Newsletter

June 1995

IT TAKES GUTS and endurance to challenge the might and financial muscle of an opponent like Shell UK Oil and Don Marketing’s John Donovan clearly has both in spades!

The latest episode in this long-running saga of alleged theft of promotional concepts [Debrief, 2-113; 3-14,36,48] has minnow Don picketing Shell’s annual general meeting and handing out leaflets to shareholders and staff. 

Meantime, Donovan père managed to persuade the chairman of Shell Transport and Trading, John Jennings, to meet him after the agm, although the court hearing remains set for 24 June.

Marketing Week, 26/5/95

Update by John Donovan, July 2008: We got on very well with John Jennings in several brief but highly productive meetings and have the greatest respect for him. We cannot say the same for his successors who ruined Shell’s reputation.

Sir John Jennings
