INDUSTRY TALK  I'd like to start by wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! And what a start to the year it has been. Wherever I turn recently I am being bombarded with news that many of the UK's largest retailers enjoyed a roaring, and in some cases, record Christmas trade. The likes of Next, John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Gap and House of Fraser are just some of those reporting some mind boggling trading figures. Whoop whoop and high fives all round because after a year of doom and gloom it is both a joy and relief to hear such marvellous success stories. And the even better news, especially if you work in digital, is that the Internet played a defining role for most of these businesses.

INDUSTRY TALK  What do you do in the digital age if service is your strongest selling point? The irrepressible march of the machine is already locked into the 'service industries'. We expect to bank, shop, book holidays etc. and seem content to cut out the human interaction. Even ordering a taxi today (via Uber) can be done without talking to anyone. Where will this take us and our idea of customer service?

INDUSTRY TALK  Not wanting to cut a tall poppy down and add to the one way traffic of bad news on facebook but whats clear is that the site is losing its early adapters, the 18-35 year old demographic. In fact its losing 13-45 year old demographic in its home market which could be a barometer that the early promise of social is failing consumers and they are ready for the next installment whatever that is.
