It didn’t take long for the Microsoft-Google rivalry to be mentioned at the Strategic Advertising Summit at Microsoft this morning.
Rishad Tobaccowala, chief executive of the DeNuo consulting company, told the packed audience that rapid iteration is one of the reasons that “Google is running circles around Microsoft.”
Jim Stengel, the chief marketing officer of Procter & Gamble, asked Microsoft executive Joanne Bradford if Tobaccowala was allowed to stay on the stage after making that remark.
“It’s all right, it’s all right,” she said. “I’m not sure how he’s getting to the airport, though.”
