Arise Sir Bob Isherwood

Last night the Clio Awards honoured Bob Isherwood with the 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award.

If ever there was an Aussie who deserved to have his head on a postage stamp it's surely our Bob.

* Worldwide CD of Saatchi & Saatchi

* One of the founders of the legendary Campaign Palace

* The first Australian to get his hands on a Gold Lion at Cannes

* Driving force behind the Award For World Changing Ideas

Yet he still finds time to drop by RMIT Uni, his alma mater, to chat with advertising students.

Kinda makes you wonder why he's never been mentioned in the Australia Day honours list.
