Career highlights

Being there for the rollercoaster ride of St Luke's since the very start. Latterly, \"Be brave, not beige\" for Ikea. Seeing our digital community work taking off.

Most cringeworthy moment of your career

We were pitching for a very big account, it was my slot. As I started to speak, my loose crown flew out of my mouth and bounced across the table. Class.

Best thing about your job

Starting with a mess of information and ending up with a beautifully clear idea.

Worst thing about your job

Starting somewhere beautifully clear and ending up in a mess.

Advice for a wannabe A Lister

Don't think about getting in, just do what you do really well and, when you get there, it will feel like no big deal. Fixating on getting in will drive you crazy and you'll probably never get there.

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

Howard Gossage. A brilliant, contrary, counter-intuitive bloke. Not too keen on being dead, though.

What would you do on a sabbatical?

Get bored.

Your USP?

Enthusiasm.

What would you change about yourself?

The pot belly. (I'm working on it.)

Favourite media

Just discovered an excellent magazine called Bad Idea.

Favourite shop

Portslade Fish Market.

What’s the biggest lie you’ve told?

It went down a storm in the focus groups.

How many toilets do you own?

Two.

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

The dog is part of the family, so I'll say books.

Lowdown

Another year has gone by without Teer having much new business to sink his planning teeth into. He keeps himself busy with Strongbow and Ikea, but is it enough to satisfy the Scot? Bringing in new clients has to be St Luke's New Year's resolution.
