Twenty-two years without being found out.
An uncannily accurate but none-too-flattering imitation of my then boss talking to his girlfriend on the phone, done for the amusement of my colleagues but without the knowledge that the source of my inspiration was well within earshot. Mike, you know it was affectionate really, don't you?
I spend other people's money on things that interest me.
Not everyone is quite as interested in this stuff as I am.
Get yourself a proper ambition.
Call me boring if you like, but I'm very comfortable in my own skin.
Work with the microfinance charity Five Talents to help the active poor start and build businesses in the developing world.
The approachable technocrat.
I'd be a slightly better guitarist than my son.
Family Guy, The Guardian.
Peter Cook's Guitar World.
I once managed to hide the fact that I'd overspent a client's press budget by £100,000.
My bass trombone (a Holton TR180A).
The head of MEC's research division, media boffin \"Fletch\" played a large role in MEC's good run on new business this year – what the man doesn't know about ROI isn't worth knowing. He's also heavily involved in charity work, but doesn't like to blow his own trumpet. Ironic, considering he's a talented trombone player.
