Flack: Flack

1. Six brave women from Berkshire-based PR agency Promote have completed a 12,000ft skydive to raise £4,500 for Sport Relief.

MD Sue Anstiss said they all were 'pretty scared' before the jump - but especially account director Katie Start, who kindly stood in for a colleague who fell ill just days before.

2. Law firm DLA Piper managed a stunt at Canary Wharf last week to promote the results of its election survey. The company asked 545 senior business leaders about their views on the party leaders. And then the marketing team donned these, er, splendid masks.

3. Bear Grylls celebrated the launch of his new TV show by jumping off the roof of PR agency Launch Group's office in Soho. His Born Survivor series is set in a concrete jungle, where he uses his survival techniques to stay alive in a post-disaster city. The premiere, organised by Launch, took place in Leicester Square this week.
