The Barley Mow. Being given a job by Colin Gottlieb. The Eurostar account. And every pitch I've worked on and won.
When I pitched for Orange about six or so years ago. The fear of that presentation repeating itself has kept me motivated ever since.
That Leslie Phillips moment when everything connects in your head, you get the idea and you just know it's going to be a great piece of work.
I hate losing pitches.
Start at Z and work backwards. Sorry. I inherited my dad's sense of humour. Alternatively, trust your instincts and don't grow up too fast.
No one person. Probably a little bit of each of the team that created the Bravia \"balls\" ad.
Rent a house in the hills overlooking Florence and pretend to be a gentleman of leisure doing the Grand Tour.
I play the French horn better than anyone I know.
About a stone. Less, in case you were wondering.
Books to learn stuff and comics because I'm still about eight.
It was all my own work.
Just the one. But it's a very nice one.
My piano. It's brilliant to play. Looks quite impressive too.
