Diary: Senior dumps his bird

The good people at Procter & Gamble were treated to an impromptu recreation of a scene from the Hitchcock classic The Birds last week, courtesy of Robert Senior.

Senior, who was in Chicago for a presentation to the FMCG giant, was walking towards a throng of P&Gers sipping their lattes outside the conference building, when he was dive-bombed by a passing bird.

The SSF Group UK chief executive flung the creature off his neck, and it promptly fell to the ground dead in front of the gaping crowd. The deceased bird got its revenge, however. Before snuffing it, it had crapped all over Senior.
