Sore Busty gets knickers in a twist

gossip-three-23-300x30011Oh I do love a good girls’ day out, so when I got an invite to attend this week’s WACL event (that’s Women in Advertising & Communications London to all you hairy-arsed blokes) I couldn’t resist. After all, what could be more inspirational than being surrounded by the sisterhood?
Kings Place was wall-to-wall with some of the most powerful women in advertising…and little ol’ Busty.
I must admit, they did seem a pretty confident bunch, too, and looking around the room there was definitely an essence of “who needs men, anyway?”
According to the blurb “you’ll find out how to get your voice heard and influence the conversation in your organisation. You’ll hear some insightful stories, both professional and personal, from some of the leading figures in our industry about how they have achieved success that has enhanced – rather than compromised – their personal values. There will be healthy debate, plenty of tips to take away with you, and a chance to network with industry peers and mentors.”
Well, to be fair I did get a few tips, that’s for sure – like how to dress and act like a man and of course the classic Madeleine Albright quote of “there is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women” – but come on girls, does it really have to be so serious? I mean where was the nail salon…the pink champagne…the beauty treatment…the girly gossip corner? Bah.
To be honest maybe I wasn’t in the right frame of mind as I was still sore – quite literally as it happens – after my special ‘Durexperiment’ undies exploded mid-chat with Huw Davis’ Mr Bigkok. One minute we were getting on like a house on fire, the next thing my smouldering undies were like a raging inferno…and I’ve still got the blisters to be prove it. Ouch.
One place which has also been razed to the ground this week is my esteemed editor’s alma mater, Centaur Media, where two of his old bosses have, er, “decided to leave” or should that be “it was decided they should leave”?
Of course, he won’t have a word said against old Geoff Wilmot and Tim Potter, even though the former did raise more than a few eyebrows when he sent an email to all staff on July 7 2005 which told them to stay at their desks all day working, because it was much safer than trying to get home.
The real question is, where now for Marketing Week? Come to think of it, it’s run by two women so, if WACL is anything to go by, they’ve got no problems at all…
