Mother’s Day in the time of self-isolation

Mar 14 2020

Let’s face it, Mother’s Day this year – on 22nd March – will be different as we will be in self-isolation for the first time in our lifetime. A pandemic is like a war and we need to learn how to be patient and cheer ourselves up enjoying the little things in life. Mothers are called to be carers, mumpreneurs, companions and lovers. So I find myself reflecting on the significance of motherhood in my life and in my fellow mums’ lives too. Mum, mamma, Mutter etc. in whatever language this small word carries a big meaning for all of us. That meaning partly depends on how we feel about our own mothers and grandmothers and also what our communities expect of mothers.

Innovation trends in household products set for 2020 by Product of the Year

Sep 19 2019

For the past 11 years I have been involved in the selection process for the various Product of the Year categories. This is an annual industry campaign aimed at encouraging brands to be always innovative within the household product categories. Thanks to the Product of The Year Awards, companies are forced to continuously improving their ranges. Consumers are the ones who ultimately reap the benefits of this ‘marketing exercise’. To be eligible for entry, the products must have been launched in the past 12 months and must have demonstrated innovation in one or more key areas – including functionality, design, packaging, or recipe. Jury Day takes place in September and is great fun for me to join a panel including journalists and industry experts to test, assess all entries for quality and leave them then to the consumers to decide what is worth giving the prestigious award.
