At the recent 'Being A Man' conference on the Southbank the mostly male audience were asked how many of them instantly made a sexually loaded assessment of any new woman they were introduced to. Well over half raised their hands. The unasked question was not addressed to the women in the audience, how many of them...I'm not sure we are really that different.

It's St Patrick's weekend in Northern Ireland, and the lawnmowers are limbering up. For a week or two, now, the rainfall has slowed, the birds have been singing for nesting territory, and underpinning their chorus is that lower, guttural sound: the growling of the First Lawnmowers of Spring.

If I see one more creme egg brownie picture in my facebook feed I'll scream. It's time to break out, try something new. I know they're good, I know. But a change is as good as a rest. And these babies are a little less guilt inducing. They've got oats in them for goodness sake. Slow release carbs combined with an Eastery sugar fix.

Everywhere we look the story is the same: buy and achieve these things and then you'll be happy. But remember, you'll then need to keep getting more in order to stay happy and keep up with your peers. And if they start to get ahead then just keep consuming! On and on we go in a mindless and seemingly endless cycle.

Building the Super High Street

Business is strongest is when it's face-to-face with customers and the beautiful products can be displayed physically in an alluring way. I regularly tell retailers who moan about the web to work out how to compete effectively instead. Innovators in top up grocery shopping, web purchase collection and so on, understand that the future is omni-channel and are making money. Grenson shows us how a perfect customer experience makes people feel special and gets them buying. And everybody please remember, you can't get your hair done, grab a quick drink when you fancy it, have your shoes mended, collect your prescription or dry cleaning quickly on the web (yet).

Female pornstars can't win: they are labelled victims, and if they try to defend what they do for a living, this is taken as proof of just how 'oppressed' they are. According to SPC and Object, their voices are not worth hearing. This is why we are protesting outside the SPC conference from 3pm on Saturday 15 March.
