Most cringeworthy moment of your career

I'm sure there have been loads, but, fortunately, mid-term dementia stops me from remembering.

Advice for a wannabe A Lister

The way to get in is to care about your clients, not your own PR.

If you could be anyone else in this business, who would it be?

Why be anyone else?

What would you do on a sabbatical?

Run a vineyard in Tuscany (and drink the wine).

Your USP?

I'm user-friendly.

What would you change about yourself?

The need to only change one thing.

Favourite media

Saturday BBC Radio 2, Sky Sports and The Sunday Times.

Favourite shop

Lea and Sandeman.

What’s the biggest lie you’ve told?

\"That's a really good question...\"

How many toilets do you own?

None, I'm still paying off my mortgage.

What can’t you live without (apart from family)?

Good food, wine and company – and a half-decent England team in some sport.

Lowdown

After some welcome wins at the beginning of the year, the rest of 2008 was low-key for the small but well-supported BJK&E. Jennings, the more inward-facing of the agency's joint managing directors, joined BJK&E in 1993, and has proved himself an adept operator.
