I have had what can only be described as a rude awakening this week.
I realised some time ago that I have reached the age were most bright young things have started to see me as almost transparent and that my considerable skills are being dismissed as old fashioned. I accept this because I work in an industry which has always judged people on talent rather than the date on a birth certificate.
But the thing that has annoyed me more than anything else this week is that I was told my pitch for my latest project was “too northern”!
This came as a shock considering the content of this extravaganza was to promote a northern town. I now truly feel like the lunatics have taken over the asylum!
