Career highlights

Chief executive at Agency Republic when we were named Agency of the Year four times, managing partner at Work Club when we were named runner-up Agency of the Year in our first full year of trading.

Favourite TV programme

TV. I've read about that on the internet.

Newspaper

None of them. In the 70s, newspapers were 80 per cent news, 20 per cent opinion; now it's the other way round and they're all hours/days behind the pace.

Magazine

Now you're talking. It's literally a toss-up between Yachting World, Yachting Monthly and Razzle. If there was a Razzle World and Razzle Monthly I could do without the boat porn.

Website

As a vegetarian, the obvious choice is www.hatsofmeat.com.

Favourite recent marketing campaign

Muse's USB treasure hunt: six USB sticks hidden in six continents: Find them, merge the files, get the new song, win stuff. Willy Wonka 2.0.

Favourite brand

Wally. Only Italians could build the sleekest yachts afloat and get away with that name. It's like building Bentleys and calling them Spunkers. Or really expensive fridges and calling them Smeg.

What’s your concession to the recession?

Trolley dashes at Matalan.

Who would play you in a movie?

Mark Rylance. The best actor alive today. Fact.

Party trick

I'm an enthusiastic celebrant but I can't compete with Rob Stapledon, Work Club's bank manager at Coutts, who does the splits for new clients.

Hobbies

Toddler-wrangling, making up excuses to go sailing, unfinished projec...

What gadget do you think should be invented?

The Hoverboard.

You’ve got one last Tweet before you die. What do you Tweet?

\"Now I've had the time of my life. No I never felt like this before. Yes I swear it's the truth, and I owe it all to you.\"

Lowdown

Known for his energy and positive attitude, this year he went exploring in the Antarctic on a Russian boat that cuts through ice. Perhaps this is symbolic of how Brooks' dogged determination never lets anything get in his way, especially when securing a client.

Born

21 August 1967, Sevenoaks, UK.
